Rashard Lewis will be playing for the Miami Heat after all. The veteran forward agreed to a two-year, $2.8 million deal on Tuesday, according to ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst.
Lewis chose the Heat over other suitors, which might have presented him with a more lucrative offer, but was sold on playing with the defending NBA champions by team president Pat Riley over the weekend, Windhorst reports.
The 6-foot-10 forward, who appeared in just 28 games with the Washington Wizards last season because of injury, could be introduced as early as Wednesday, when Miami plans to make the signing of free agent guard Ray Allen official during a news conference.
Last season Lewis averaged 7.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game while in Washington. He's expected to help the Heat with his perimeter as a career 38.8 percent 3-point shooter.
