Rashard Lewis’ role with the Heat will be fairly straightforward: take threes, make threes. If he’s feeling particularly healthy and/or motivated, he could even pull down a few boards.
Either way, Lewis will benefit from plenty of open looks, courtesy of two superstars, the league’s best three-point shooter and a supporting cast that consistently proves it should not be underestimated.
Throughout his career, Lewis has proven to be an outstanding three-point shooter, and as a complimentary piece to such a talented core, his consistency and confidence should return to their prior levels.
And if LeBron’s move to the power forward spot proves to be permanent, Lewis could even find himself starting as the other forward in a versatile starting lineup that would allow Ray Allen, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem to anchor a much improved second unit.
