NBA Free Agency 2012: With The Acquisition Of Ray Allen, Miami Sets Their Sights On Rashard Lewis

The basketball world was turned upside down on Friday as free agent shooting guard, Ray Allen, decided against returning to play for the Boston Celtics and instead agreed to play for the rival Miami Heat.

Miami is coming off of their second NBA Championship last month and are now looking to retool their roster for a run at a repeat. Ray Allen gives them one of the best shooters to ever play the game and with the possible retirement of Mike Miller, they're looking to add another pretty good shooter as well, according to Sports Illustrated scribe, Chris Mannix:

Lewis last played for the Washington Wizards and was involved in a trade with the New Orleans Hornets but never played there as the team subsequently bought him out of his contract, making him a free agent.
