Heat on verge of signing free agent Lewis

Veteran forward would give Miami another scoring threat

Headline Goes Here

According to multiple sources, the Miami Heat are set to sign veteran forward Rashard Lewis.

Lewis had several other teams that could offer more than the veteran's minimum of $1.35 million, but instead chose Miami.

Lewis is a 6-foot-10 shooting specialist and former All-Star.  He averaged just 7.8 points in 28 games for the Washington Wizards last season, when he was plagued by a right knee injury.

Lewis would become the second key free agent to join the Heat, following Ray Allen who's expected to sign tomorrow.
