The NBA trade deadline is bringing up a lot of a names and causing many analysts to consider the future of players around the league with their current teams. One of the players being discussed as changing teams in the near future is Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh.
Bosh came to the Heat in 2010 with LeBron James, but of the three stars who assembled in South Beach, Bosh was always the odd man out. This is why ESPN.com’s Chad Ford believes that Chris Bosh will likely be on his way out this offseason so he can sign a max contract with another team.
From what I can gather talking to teams and agents around the league, it’s Chris Bosh who is the most likely to leave. LeBron and Wade are so good, I think we all forget what a force Bosh can be. Lots of teams would give him the max and feature him in ways Miami can’t. LeBron might leave, but I think the odds are in Miami’s favor.
This makes a lot of sense considering Bosh has always been the third wheel, albeit a very productive third wheel, for the Heat since he arrived. He may not have the type of success somewhere else that he’s currently having in Miami, but the payday will be gigantic and it may end up being his only option.
