Rashard Lewis is set to undergo surgery on his right knee, according to Yahoo Sports' Mark Spears.

Spears spoke with Lewis' agent, Colin Bryant.

Lewis, 34, signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks earlier this week. The contract was reported to be one year for the veteran's minimum salary.

The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 4.5 points and 1.8 rebounds and shot 34 percent from three-point range in 60 games with the Heat last season.

Dallas won 49 games and earned the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference before pushing San Antonio to seven games in the first round of the playoffs.

This offseason, the Mavericks also re-signed forward Dirk Nowitzki and agreed to terms with small forward Chandler Parsons.
