The NBA champions Miami Heat and Rashard Lewis agreed to a two year deal. Lewis will make the veteran minimum, worth about $1.3 million and will have a player option for the 13-14 season.
Lewis, was bough out by the New Orleans Hornets after they acquire him from the Washington Wizards a month ago. Lewis isn't the same player he once was when he played for the Seattle Supersonics and the Orlando Magic, he's been injured the past two seasons and only played in 57 and 28 games. However, he won't be needed to do much for the Heat, if he can knock down a couple of jumpers, that's all the Heat will ask.
Lewis is a 6'10 power forward, who will spread the floor even more for all stars Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Lewis will be reuniting with former Sonics teammate, Ray Allen, they played together in Seattle for five seasons (2003-2007) and lead them to the second round of the playoffs in 2005.
