Is Rashard Lewis Worth the Max? July 13, 2007

That being said, If you were the GM for the Orlando Magic, would you have given a player who was often seen as Ray Allen’s sidekick the max deal, and more importantly, give him more money than your star player Dwight Howard?

I like Rashard Lewis, but the safer bet would have been to take that $113 million and try to find some veteran talent that would provide a solid supporting cast to Dwight Howard.  That would have been the more reasonable option. 

This a deal that can make or break the Orlando Magic, but we all know that huge contracts have caused problems for teams in the past.
