Lewis played sparingly for the Wizards in 2011-2012, averaging 7.8 ppg 3.9 rpg, his lowest totals since his rookie season in 98-99. Lewis was traded to New Orleans in June and subsequently bought out by the Hornets, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Lewis has been a bit of a disappointment since signing a seven-year, $118 million contract with the Sonics in 2007. Lewis was then dealt to the Magic in 2009 before being sent to the Wizards in 2010. Lewis gives the Heat another outside shooter to add to their roster along with recently signed Ray Allen.
For his career, Lewis has averaged 16.1 ppg and 5.6 rpg while shooting .388 from three-point range in 14 seasons. He was originally drafted 32nd overall by the Sonics out of high school in 1998.
