Rashard Lewis Agrees to 2-Year Deal With Heat

by July 10, 2012

According to ESPN, the Heat have signed free-agent forward Rashard Lewis, Ray Allen’s former Seattle teammate. Lewis’ deal is reportedly for two years at the veteran’s minimum: “The Miami Heat have added another veteran player at a discount. Forward Rashard Lewis has agreed to a two-year, $2.8 million deal, sources told ESPN.com. Lewis had other suitors and might’ve been able to get a higher offer elsewhere but was sold on a role with the defending champions after meeting with team president Pat Riley on Sunday in Miami. He became the Heat’s top priority when free-agent center Marcus Camby agreed to a sign-and-trade to go to the New York Knicks.”
