I heard that are saying chances are that Rashad Lewis won't be on the team in the end. I think thats a mistake, but im not the one making the decisions. I think if you give him something to play for he can be a good player again.

And what would that be?

He was on a championship contending team and wasn't motivated. He then moved on to a team as bad as the Hornets couldn't motivate himself either. He's a shooter that can't shoot anymore, doesn't play defense, nor does he rebound well. His veteran presence is also overrated as he was a non factor in a the Wizards jacked up locker room.

His only value to the Hornets is the 13 million dollar buy out and the Okafor/Ariza contract shedding. There's no reason to pay him 20 plus million dollars to sit at the back of the bench on a rebuilding team. Say he pulls a Hodini and has a decent season for us... it does absolutely nothing for our future.

It's probably true that Lewis offers nothing for the Hornets future, but neither did the perpetually injured / benched Okafor & Ariza. Hopefully they can use the money more wisely this time.
