Bosh sign-and-trade done

Posted on: July 9, 2010 6:52 pm
 

The Raptors and Heat have agreed to the framework of a sign-and-trade arrangement that will complete Chris Bosh's departure for Miami to join Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, a person with knowledge of the deal confirmed to CBSSports.com Friday.

"It's pretty much done," the person said.

Toronto will get multiple draft picks, including a 2011 first-round pick that was previously traded to the Heat, and a trade exception -- but no players. Bosh, who along with Wade committed to joining the Heat on Wednesday, will get a six-year deal as opposed to the five-year contract he would have been eligible for through a straight signing.

Agent Henry Thomas, who represents both Wade and Bosh, said there has been steady progress in contract talks with Miami for both players.

i do agree that Bosh is overrated, James and Wade can play together, but can they play well with Bosh??? i think he's the question mark, he's good, but i dont think he's great like some think he is.

Yeah, NBA players hate Toronto.  That's why Shaq, LeBron, even D-Wade among others can all be seen in Toronto nightclubs during the season whenever they have a night off and are anywhere even close.  Hell, even Vince Carter comes back on a regular basis.
If the Raptors could get their act together, players would flock to Toronto.  Heard of Mona Halem? I'd be surprised, but Shaq, LeBron, Wade and pretty much every other NBA player has.

Toronto is a hockey town and couldn't give a crap about the NBA.  The Blue Jays are a nice summer treat when they are winning, but they really are just an appetizer before hockey season starts.  
I am very interested to see how the three egos play together in Miami.  Three top dogs, one ball, should be a treat.

get it right guy - sure Nash didn't play for Canada the last time but before that he played 12 + years everytime his country called. To make that comment is uneducated, unfair and unresearched.

it's not just the Toronto thing - Toronto is the 4th largest metropolis in North America and the whole Canadian 'taxes' issue is garbage. Sure FLA has no State taxes, but they are totally dependent on the housing/mortagage market. How'd that work out for ya? Toronto has almost 3 million people and is a beautiful multicultural city with some of the best dancer talent in North America. What's there not for an overpaid athlete to like?

The whole NBA is in jeopardy because of these egomanical overpaid athletes. I don't care if they were all Free Agents - they all had the right to depart their respective teams - which is ine, but its the way it was done - showing people in CLE and FLA in bars waiting for the reaction - an hour tv special - classless.

If this was planned back during the Olympics - it is totally reprehensible. There are only so many NYC, LAs, CHI and Miamis - they might as well fold at least 8-10 teams right now because they don't have a chance. The athletes and owners get richer while the poor fan takes it off the chin.
