Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Mavericks have voided the contract of forward Rashard Lewis.

Lewis had agreed to terms on a veteran minimum contract with the Mavs on July 19, but a recent physical revealed a knee injury that will require surgery.

"It came to our attention during Rashard Lewis' physical that he is in need of a medical procedure on his right knee," Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said. "We wish him all the best for a speedy recovery and continued success in his remarkable career."

Lewis appeared in 60 games with the Miami Heat last season, averaging 4.5 points in just over 16 minutes of action.

Over his 16-year career, Lewis has averages of 14.9 points and 5.2 rebounds. He is 45.2 percent career shooter, hitting 38.6 percent of his 3-pointers.
