The Miami Heat have decided to exercise their team option to keep starting point guard Mario Chalmers for the 2013-14 season.

Heat President Pat Riley made the announcement on Wednesday. The former Kansas guard Chalmers is due to make $4 million this coming season, which will be his sixth with the Heat.

Chalmers has started 273 of his 366 games with the Heat, including all 187 of his appearances in the last two seasons. He averaged 8.6 points per game this season, making a career-best 123 tries from 3-point range.

Chalmers also averaged 17 points in the last two games of this year's NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, when the Heat rallied from a 3-2 series deficit.
