Lewis joins a revamped Mavericks team that recently signed Chandler Parsons as a restricted free agent. Lewis will likely backup Parsons. The Mavericks also add center Tyson Chandler, guard Raymond Felton, forward Richard Jefferson and center Greg Smith.

"Rashard made a difficult decision to join Dallas after two memorable seasons in Miami," agent Colin Bryant told Yahoo Sports. "He would like to thank [Heat owners] Micky Arison, [executives] Pat Riley, Andy Elisburg and the entire Heat organization. He will always consider them family and champions.

"After talking to [Mavericks owner] Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle, he felt a comfort level with the Mavericks. He's excited to join another championship organization."
