NBA Free Agency: Rashard Lewis Will Visit Heat, According To Report

Veteran free agent forward Rashard Lewis will visit the Miami Heat, according to TNT's David Aldridge. Lewis has bounced around this offseason before hitting the open market. He was traded from the Wizards to the Hornets as a part of the Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza deal, and then New Orleans promptly exercised the $13.7 million buyout clause in his contract. With his mammoth contract no longer a huge issue, the stretch four is getting plenty of interest during the first week of NBA free agency.

The Heat, Celtics, and Lakers have all been previously cited as contenders with interest in Lewis. According to Aldridge, he will be in Miami this weekend for a visit with Pat Riley's club:

The visit from Lewis will come on the heels of Miami's big push to acquire one of the other top shooters in the game in Ray Allen. Aldridge also reports that the Hawks and Knicks are two other teams with interest in Lewis.
