As the Big 3′s future in Miami seems a bit shaky at the moment, one factor seems to be consistent: Chris Bosh doesn’t really want to leave the Miami Heat.
Source close to Bosh says he still wants to be in Miami. “No change,” source says. What that means, well, stay tuned. I guess.

Bosh made it know in late May during the NBA Playoffs that being in Miami is where he wants to be.
“I don’t want to go anywhere. I like it here. It’s Miami,” Bosh said. “Everybody wants to come here. Yeah.”
Looking at how the Big 3 has operated in free agency–mostly through sources–there seems to be some unexpected synergy between LeBron James and Chris Bosh. If James decides to return to the Heat, Bosh will likely do the same as Woj reported earlier today.
“Bosh is back in a second if LeBron commits,” one league source involved in the dialogue told Yahoo Sports.
For now, Bosh has remained committed to finding a way to make things work in Miami, sources told Yahoo Sports, and continues to work with Heat management to find creative financial ways to upgrade the roster
But if James bolts, Bosh will follow in his footsteps, taking greener pastures over comfort in Miami. These last few days, reports have emerged stating both the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and Phoenix Suns will have their eye on Miami if Bosh chooses to go elsewhere. Considering Bosh’s status in the NBA, those two franchises won’t be the only teams looking in his direction. And wherever Bosh chooses to go, he’ll certainly land that max contract he’s reportedly coveting so much.
There’s much interest in the Heat’s Big 3 breaking up, but the signs say they’ll reunite in Miami. The real question is when will it all come into fruition.
