(Reuters) - Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem are returning to the Heat, even if LeBron James will not, and Luol Deng will join them in Miami.

The Heat re-signed Wade to a multi-year contract on Tuesday. The 32-year-old All-Star guard will make at least $15 million per season, ESPN reported.

Riley touted the addition of Deng as "one of the most important free agent signings that we have ever had in the history of the franchise." The Heat did not disclose contract terms, but previous reports put the deal at two years and $20 million.

Haslam agreed to a two-year deal worth $5.6 million, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

The Heat also announced the signing of forward James Ennis. Acquired in a trade during the 2013 NBA Draft, Ennis spent last season playing in Australia.

The Houston Rockets signed Joey Dorsey to a two-year, $2 million contract to replace Omer Aski as center Dwight Howard's backup, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Rockets also reached an agreement on a one-year contract with former Milwaukee Bucks forward Jeff Adrien for the veteran minimum, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Dorsey, 30, has not played in the NBA since 2011. In parts of three NBA seasons, he averaged 2.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 61 career games.   Continued...
