Rashard Lewis's former franchise is no longer in the place that he left it — figuratively and literally. A year after Lewis departed Seattle to sign in Orlando in 2007, the SuperSonics bolted for Oklahoma City and became the Thunder. Only a few faces remain from his days with the organization, including former teammate Nick Collison. Lewis realized the franchise was starting over when it drafted Kevin Durant and traded Ray Allen to Boston for the draft rights to Jeff Green, but he can appreciate what the team has accomplished on the court since he's been gone.
