Report: Rashard Lewis to have knee surgery

Tuesday July 22nd, 2014

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.
