After a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks, veteran forward Rashard Lewis has decided to take his talents to South Beach.
Reportedly, Lewis has agreed to a two-year deal with the Miami Heat. The deal will be much less than Lewis has been used to over the course of his NBA career as he is set to make $2.8 million over the next two years while playing alongside LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
This was another brilliant move by the Heat as they have now surrounded the Big 3 of LeBron, Wade and Chris Bosh with numerous three-point shooters. Even without the addition of Lewis, the Heat would still be headed in the right direction to defend their title with the addition of one-time NBA champion Ray Allen.
The combination of Shane Battier, Mike Miller, James Jones along with Allen and Lewis is exactly what this team needs to spread the floor. With the additions of Allen and Lewis, the Heat will be a strong off the bench and arguably the best three-point shooting team in the league as long as these veterans continue to shoot well from beyond the arc.
Even though Miami has had one of the best off-seasons in the league in terms of free agent signings, the Heat might not be done adding players to the mix in South Beach with the team rumored to be pursuing Grant Hill.
Unfortunately, the Heat may have missed out on Hill with the veteran supposedly ready to retire from the game. It remains uncertain whether or not Hill is ready to hang up his sneakers, but if he isn’t, the Heat will be in the running to sign him along with the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
