CONFLICTING REPORTS ABOUT BOSH TO HEAT IN SIGN-AND-TRADE DEAL
The Chris Bosh era in Toronto may be officially over.
ESPN’s NBA contributor Dan LeBatard reports that the Raptors are poised
to complete a sign-and-trade deal with Miami that would see Bosh go to
the Heat for power forward Michael Beasley, point guard Mario Chalmers
and forward Joel Anthony.
According to Lebatard’s Twitter message on Wednesday, Bosh and fellow
potential free agent Wade share the same agent so there’s no tampering
Bosh opted out of the final year of his contract with the Raptors, leaving more than $17 million on the table to join a free agent class that includes Wade and LeBron James.
The seven-year veteran averaged career-highs with 24 points and 10.8 rebounds this year.
However, the Globe and Mail has disputed the initial report, with one source telling the paper, flat-out, "There is no truth to that."
