Rashard Lewis Rumors: Heat, Celtics, Lakers Among Contenders With Interest

According to Marc Spears of Yahoo!, a trio of expected contenders next season are likely to make a run at free agent forward Rashard Lewis. The stretch four was traded by the Wizards to the Hornets this offseason and then had his contract bought out by the New Orleans on Saturday, putting him on the market. With the free agency period kicking into high gear, the Heat, Celtics, and Lakers are three teams reportedly with interest in adding Lewis. Via Spears of Yahoo!:

Before the buyout, Lewis was set to make $23 million next season -- the second-highest amount in the league. But the Hornets exercised the $13.7 million buyout provision in his deal. With the monster contract no longer an issue, it now appears a host of teams are looking to add the sharpshooting Lewis.
