Rumors and speculations are now swirling around the Toronto Raptors, who has reportedly traded Terrence Ross, Patrick Patterson, and Jared Sullinger for Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat.
The Miami Heat remains undecided whether they will let Chris Bosh play for the 2016-17 NBA season. According to Barry Jackson of Miami Herald, discussions remain focused on the Heat’s comfort level with Bosh taking new thinners that would be out of his system within eight hours or so, and ways for him to play while taking those types of thinners.
In a recent video of Chris Bosh, the 32-year-old big man was seen training in a gym. Many people took it as a sign that Bosh will be playing for the Heat next season. However, the Heat management will decide whether they will let Bosh play or not.
With the departure of Dwyane Wade, there were reports saying that the Heat are planning to build a younger roster with Hassan Whiteside at the center. There are rumors that Chris Bosh will be traded to the Toronto Raptors, enabling him to play for his hometown like Wade.
In a suggested trade scenario in RealGM, the Miami Heat sends Chris Bosh to Raptors for Terrence Ross, Patrick Patterson, and Jared Sullinger. All three players coming from Toronto are in their 20s, which made them fit into the Heat’s plan to create a younger roster.
Chris Bosh will then be given the chance to return to the Raptors and team up with stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. The Raptors have established an incredible playoff run last season after facing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Having a healthy Chris Bosh on their team gives them more chance to compete against the best teams in the East next season. However, this trade could happen if Bosh will be cleared to play and is 100% healthy before the start of the 2016-17 NBA season.
