NBA Free Agency 2012: Rashard Lewis Could Still Visit Atlanta Hawks, 'Impressed' With Miami Heat

Rashard Lewis is living the dream, being overpaid and able to decide whether he wants to play for the Atlanta Hawks or Miami Heat. He's made a lot of money already, and he seems to be interested in joining the Heat next season, like a lot of mid to lower level free agents searching for a chance to play for a title.

This, from the Palm Beach Post:

The Heat may yet have better luck with Lewis, who has not officially made a decision, and could still visit Atlanta this week. Sources, however, said the 32-year-old finesse forward was extremely impressed with the Heat's presentation, enough that he is seriously considering taking the $1.35 million offer. That would be tacked onto the $13.7 million Lewis has already received from New Orleans in a buyout.
