I saw this tweet about the recently traded Rashard Lewis a few minutes ago:
Rashard Lewis to be waived teams interested in him Magic, Lakers, Clippers, Bobcats, Nets, T-Wolves, & Heat-DeRozan
— NBA NewsRumors (@NBA_NewsRumors) June 21, 2012
I’m not sure how accurate the rumor is, but if it’s true, I don’t see any problem with the Bobcats picking up Lewis… On the cheap.
Sure, the Bobcats could pick him up before he clears waivers Friday, but then they’d be on the hook for the rest of his massive contract.
Lewis would probably rather play for all of those other teams that tweet mentioned, but who knows how much any of them will offer him.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens if he actually does get waived, and if the Bobcats actually make a move for him.
