Rashard Lewis to complement Ray Allen as Heat add another 3-point specialist
Question of the Day
MIAMI — Rashard Lewis has decided to join the Miami Heat, becoming yet another shooting option for the reigning NBA champions.
The free agent forward and the Heat agreed to terms Tuesday, and Lewis is expected to sign his contract Wednesday. Lewis‘ decision comes just four days after Ray Allen agreed to accept an offer from Miami.
Allen and Lewis were Seattle teammates for five seasons, from 2003 through 2007 - and both figure to fit perfectly into Miami’s plan to surround LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with even more shooters who can stretch defenses.
Lewis will make the veteran minimum from Miami for this coming season, worth about $1.3 million. He’s picking up another $13.7 million because the final year of his most recent contract — a $118 million, six-year pact — was bought out earlier this offseason by New Orleans, who acquired the 6-foot-10 forward in a trade with Washington and then waived him.
Slowed by left knee problems this past season, Lewis averaged 7.8 points in 28 games for Washington. For his career, he’s averaged 16.1 points with Seattle, Orlando and Washington.
Camby makes way back to Knicks
HOUSTON — Marcus Camby is returning to New York, while the Houston Rockets continue to reshape their roster.
Camby, 38, agreed Monday to rejoin the Knicks in a deal that sends three players and two second-round draft picks to Houston. Yahoo Sports reported that Camby’s deal was for three years and $13.2 million.
The Rockets will get guard Toney Douglas, centers Josh Harrelson and Jerome Jordan and second-round picks in 2014 and ‘15. The 6-foot-11 Camby, meanwhile, will be back in New York where he played from 1998-2002. Though Camby has battled injuries during his NBA career, he remains a productive rebounder and shot blocker even after 16 seasons.
