Rashard Lewis On Verge Of Signing With Miami Heat, According To Report

NBA forward Rashard Lewis has been with the Washington Wizards since 2010, when he was traded away from the Orlando Magic in exchange for Gilbert Arenas. The two-time All-Star now appears set to take his talents to South Beach.

Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida initially reported that Lewis will sign with the Heat on Wednesday, the first day that free agents are allowed to put pen to paper. The contract would be for the $1.35 million veteran's minimum, according to Tomasson. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports then reported that minimum-salary contract would be a two-year deal.

The Heat have already proved this offseason that they're far from content to rest on their laurels after winning the NBA championship, reportedly agreeing to terms with former Boston Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen and now bringing Lewis into the fold. They're putting together an even deeper and stronger team for the 2012-13 season.
