The Heat continue to pour it on the rest of the NBA. Yesterday, they unveiled their two newest designated shooters: Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis. In what could go down as the largest pay cut in the history of the world, Lewis signed on for two years and $2.8 million. If he has anything left, this would be a killer deal: a sweet-shooting versatile forward who can play off the ball and help anchor the second lineup … The Pacers were another busy team yesterday. They’ve added Gerald Green to be one of their top wing players off the bench, giving him a three-year, $10 million deal. It’s crazy to think how far he’s come. We remember seeing the former high school star at All-Star Weekend in February, watching the NBA teams practice from the corner of the arena, hanging out with a bunch of D-Leaguers and going virtually unnoticed. The Pacers also traded Darren Collison and swingman Dahntay Jones in a sign-and-trade deal. Dallas will send back Ian Mahinmi. Meanwhile, we’d say Collison is a pretty decent backup plan for Dallas, who failed to nab Deron Williams, and then let Jason Terry walk. The Mavs also picked up Chris Kaman, who’ll be bringing his Fourth of July backyard fireworks sessions along with him … Other signings and deals that went down yesterday: Ryan Anderson was officially traded to New Orleans for forward/center Gustavo Ayon … The Dorell Wright-to-Philly deal was expanded to include New Orleans, who will send Jarrett Jack to the Bay Area … The Bulls waived C.J. Watson and are interested in Michael Redd because they could lose Kyle Korver to the T’Wolves … And the Nets added Jerry Stackhouse, who became much less relevant than Sookie Stackhouse a long time ago … Finally, John Wall helped to unveil the cover for Dime #70 when he tweeted out the cover early yesterday afternoon. We’re extremely proud of this one – a lot of dope features in there on Joe Johnson‘s sneaker vault, Evan Turner, Dion Waiters, Anthony Davis, and a definitive look at the promising rookie class – so hopefully Wall can back it up and get the Wizards into the playoffs in 2013. Check for the issue on newsstands nationwide … We’re out like Dwight’s dream.
