Chris Bosh

  1. LeBron willing to pay $2 million to be wooed by New York

    Jun 22, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Free agency has a price. Freedom to choose has a price. Everything has a price. Welcome to capitalism. LeBron James wants his freedom. He wants to be a free agent and be wooed by the city of Chicago and have Jay-Z perform “New York” to him in person. But Brian Windhorst notes in the Cleveland…

  2. Chris Bosh playing the free agency poker game

    Jun 17, 2010, 4:47 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh is basketball professional, not a poker professional. But right now he is a little of both. And there are a lot of chips in play. There are a lot of free agent variables — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and whether or not he can lure a running mate to Miami, what Chicago has…

  3. Rebuilding the Raptors

    Jun 14, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    Toronto has become Cleveland north. “Seriously, we’ll totally remake our roster if you’ll stay. What do you want, a real point guard? We’ll get you one. More help inside? We’re on it. Want a couple more alternate uniforms, too? Whatever you ask. Please just don’t leave.” Toronto is in the midst of a massive roster…

  4. Ray Allen interested in Miami this summer?

    Jun 13, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers wants Ray Allen back in the green this summer. But after the Celtics shopped the soon-to-be 35 year old this year, there are going to be questions about where he’ll wind up. Saturday, the New York Daily News filed their answer to that question to a certain degree. Reports on the paper’s website…

  5. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade are just two guys hanging out. Really.

    Jun 10, 2010, 1:44 PM EDT

    There’s a point to this. Just hang with me. Larry Brown Sports is reporting that Wednesday night Dwyane Wade, along with girlfriend Gabrielle Union, was spotted at a restaurant in LA with Chris Bosh during a small get together. Okay, I’m going to take a second here and let you get your cries of rampant…

  6. Winderman: After the big name free agents, what will be left for everyone else?

    Jun 9, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    Amid Game 3 of the NBA Finals and Izzo-gate in Cleveland, two small but telling stories fell somewhat through the cracks Tuesday. In Phoenix, amid Amare Stoudemire’s garish grab for a six-year, $134 million free-agent contract, Grant Hill exercised his $3.3 million option to return to the Suns next season. And in Atlanta, Mo Evans…

  7. Rumor: Miami Heat free agent target order: Bosh, Stoudemire, then Boozer

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:53 AM EDT

    This is probably what everybody surmised, but now we have a little confirmation. According to a report in the Miami Herald, the free agent the Miami Heat are targeting first is Chris Bosh, who will certainly demand the max salary. His versatile inside game and ability to run the floor should be a good fit…

  8. David Stern didn't and wouldn't have stopped the free agent summit

    Jun 4, 2010, 10:39 AM EDT

    Enforcing tampering rules practically begs for a witch hunt. At some point everyone is culpable, and questions of who is punishable under NBA rules can start to get a little fuzzy as the types of personnel accused of tampering become more and more diverse. It makes sense that players under contract could be accused of…

  9. Winderman: Forget New York, Cleveland can get LeBron and Bosh

    Jun 2, 2010, 4:49 PM EDT

    Well, so much for having to miss Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Learning that it might be better off next time to actually go live when it comes to “Larry King Live,” CNN has released the entire transcript of Tuesday’s taped interview with LeBron James, after several outlets reported the content of the…

  10. Agents say there is no "free agent summit" but LeBron says otherwise

    Jun 2, 2010, 8:37 AM EDT

    When you’re an agent, you don’t just negotiate the fat contract for your client then watch the money roll in. Well, not if you’re a good one. Your job is bigger than that. You have to have your player’s back, keeping him out of trouble. So, hypothetically, if you’re client starts talking about all the…

  11. What LeBron would mean to Chicago: $$$

    May 31, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James isn’t just a basketball player. Well, he is that, a damn good one. But he’s grown beyond that into a brand. A franchise unto himself. Someone that takes a team to manage. The man prints money. So with “LeBron fever” rivaling or surpassing “Blackhawks fever” in Chicago right now, the Chicago Business Journal…

  12. Dwyane Wade will not get fined for his tampering comments

    May 28, 2010, 3:33 PM EDT

    NBA owners and executives are now treating the words “LeBron James” like they would treat the Hantavirus  — staying the hell away from it. Not the player, they all want to talk to him and sell him on why he needs to come to their fair town. But before July 1 they are afraid to…

  13. No three-year deals this time for LeBron, Wade

    May 27, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    It was a brilliant bit of strategy by LeBron James last time he was a free agent — with a six-year deal offered, he negotiated it down to just three years (about $60 million over the three years). It was brilliant because kept his options open. It kept pressure on the Cavaliers organization to build…

  14. NBA Free Agency: Did the Heat clear too much space?

    May 23, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The Miami Heat had big plans for this summer. First order of priority was to create enough room to re-sign Dwyane Wade, who loves Miami like its his mother, to max contract. The next step was adding another max free agent to prove to Wade he could win another championship in Miami after the last…

  15. So what's the deal with the Chris Bosh free agency list?

    May 23, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    On Friday, we told you about the report from Chad Ford of ESPN concerning a list of teams Chris Bosh’s agent had provided the Raptors. The list was for teams he was looking to sign with, and included the Heat, Knicks, Bulls, and Lakers, so that the Raptors could begin considering a sign and trade.…

  16. Report: Dirk Nowitzki will opt-out, become free agent

    May 22, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    No matter how reasonable the Mavericks will try and make this move and no matter how likely they willl say it is that he re-signs, the fact is today’s move will send tremors throughout the NBA landscape examining this summer’s free agency. The move? ESPN’s Marc Stein reports that Dirk Nowiztki is expected to opt-out…

  17. Report: Chris Bosh gives Raptors five teams he wants to play for, wants to play with LeBron James

    May 22, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    UPDATE 5/22 9:52 am: Bosh’s agent has denied there is a list to our own Ira Winderman (writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel). “I haven’t closed the door on anything,” (Henry) Thomas insisted. “I haven’t given Bryan any lists. There is no list. This is a process that is ongoing.” Nobody believes that, especially…

  18. Coach K is willing to cut Team USA's stars a little slack this summer

    May 13, 2010, 11:52 AM EDT

    As it turns out, some NBA players aren’t quite as gung-ho about the possibility of playing in this summer’s FIBA World Championships as they were about representing their country in the Olympics. I’m not sure if that’s because the novelty wore off when America’s basketballing name was restored in ’08 or just because the circumstances…

  19. Reading the Chris Bosh tea leaves: Yeah, he's gone.

    May 10, 2010, 12:19 PM EDT

    Our homeboy Ira Winderman explained it on Friday — by the time July 1 comes around, team executives are already going to know what is going on with the top free agents. That’s because teams afraid of losing them for nothing will have already started talking sign-and-trades. That includes Chris Bosh. For now, we’re trying…

  20. Amar'e Stoudemire is earning the money Chris Bosh wants

    May 8, 2010, 3:29 PM EDT

    Not going to lie, people. Between the earthquakes, floods, financial crises, the Suns being the stodgy, deep, rebounding team whipping the Spurs and Amar’e Stoudemire being the mature playoff performer while Chris Bosh acts out, I’m pretty sure the end is nigh. Seriously, where are we? While Chris Bosh is messing with Toronto fans’ souls…

  21. Winderman: NBA teams already talking with each other about 2010 free agents. Legally.

    May 7, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    The widely accepted notion is that 2010 free agency won’t begin until just after the stroke of midnight July 1, that any mention of a pending free agent who did not finish the season on your roster would bring a swift rebuke from the league office. Uh, not quite. The chatter already has begun among…

  22. If there's such a thing as Twitter torture, Chris Bosh is doing it to Raptors fans

    May 5, 2010, 10:51 PM EDT

    Seriously, Chris, they bought your jerseys and everything. A day after Raptors’ star free agent Chris Bosh showed up at Staples for a Lakers playoff game, and less than a week after asking people via Twitter where he should go and then if he should “go,” Bosh is at it again, making headlines and knifing…

  23. The Bulls have double the (cap) space in mind

    May 1, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    The thought was that the Bulls, though undoubtedly having some front office troubles and suffering with a lack of scoring, were in pretty good shape. They have the cap space to sign a max free agent (if possible, Dwyane Wade, if not, Chris Bosh, and the last plan is likely Joe Johnson). And one of…

  24. Chris Bosh asks on twitter where he should go, fail whale unleashed

    Apr 30, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh must love to see the twitter fail whale. That or he has been able to buy part of the company and wanted to drive up the traffic numbers. Those reasons make more sense than he actually wanted the advice of the public when he tweeted:  “Been wanting to ask. Where should I go next…

  25. It's been a few months, must be time for another roster shakeup in Dallas

    Apr 30, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    They shook it up at the trading deadline — in comes Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood. Scoring help and a better center, a deal that looked great on paper — and that didn’t work well at all. The Mavericks looked dangerous at first but their season ended with another first round loss. May be time…
