July 11 is signing day, but they will need an early commitment to bring Lewis to Orlando.
Grant Hill is making goo-goo eyes at Phoenix.
News From Seattle:
Presti said Thursday that the Sonics are intent on signing Lewis and making him the focal point of an offense that will feature Kevin Durant and Jeff Green, although they all appear to play the same position.
Several teams are believed to be interested in Lewis, but most will have to offer the Sonics a sign-and-trade deal because they are over the salary cap. That consists of packaging players or draft picks and moving them to the Sonics for Lewis, who would sign with Seattle and then be traded to the second team with a more lucrative contract.
Dutt and Lewis have formulated a list of "five or six" teams that would be the "right fit for him, with Seattle obviously being on top of that list as well. Now we've got to look at their roster. They've had a lot of changes; I'm not saying it affects it one way or the other, but you have to see what direction they want to go and see if it fits where we want to go."
