Rashard Lewis Eyeing Five Teams

July 4 2012 at 1:33pm CDT By Luke Adams

WEDNESDAY, 1:33pm: Lewis has been in contact with at least three teams on his list so far, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld — the Lakers, Knicks, and Heat.

TUESDAY, 3:37pm: Having cleared waivers, Rashard Lewis will likely be looking to sign with one of five teams, according to the New York Post's Marc Berman. Berman names the Knicks, Heat, Spurs, Hawks, and Lakers as the clubs on Lewis' "short list."

Despite being released by the Hornets, Lewis will still earn nearly $14MM in guaranteed salary from New Orleans, so he isn't expected to be seeking another big payday this summer. According to Berman, Lewis has interest in the $3.09MM mini mid-level exception, and could potentially be persuaded to sign for the veteran's minimum for the right opportunity with a title contender.

Yesterday we heard that Lewis' agent Tony Dutt has had multiple conversations with the Heat. If Lewis is seeking a chance at a championship, Miami figures to be the favorite over New York, as Berman points out in his article.

  1. if lakers do a artest + bynum deal for howard, lewis is a sure bet to be their new starting SF

  2. Lewis would be a nice pickup for San Antonio depending on who the Spurs would lose having signed Lewis. I want to keep Danny Green and Diaw so if signing Lewis wouldn’t allow the Spurs to resign both Green and Diaw then I don’t want him. He was good in Seattle but was a total non factor in Orlando.
