The Miami Heat and Chris Bosh drama is not over; with new NBA rumors now stating the big man could sign and play with another NBA team. Bosh said in a recent interview that if staying with the Heat does not work out, he have other “29 teams” to consider to continue his NBA career.

Despite the risk to his health, there are NBA teams, which are currently playoff contenders that could use Bosh in the upcoming NBA season. Teams like the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics are goo

The Heat and Bosh drama went from bad to worse earlier this week as the big man revealed some of the details in their talks of a comeback from his dangerous blood clot injury.

“I didn’t see my career in Miami ending like this. I didn’t get a call or a text or anything like that. I mean, it’s a business. We understand that.” Bosh said in the documentary “Rebuilt” series for Uninterrupted.

“We always say those things. But if you say certain things to the person and you win championships and you have these moments, you don’t want to find things out through the media.”

Earlier in the week, Heat president Pat Riley declared that they have no plans of bringing back Bosh and added that they have exhausted all ways to try to bring the big man back. However, Heat team doctors have refused to give him the go-signal of resuming his NBA career due to the dangerous nature of the blood clot issues.

The disgruntled Bosh wants out in Miami if he can’t play for the team according to NBA rumors.

This brings many possibilities for the Heat and Bosh. First, the Heat can trade Bosh to another team. But it’s going to be difficult to find a good deal for Miami with Bosh still owed about $75 million the next three seasons.

The second option is for the Heat to waive Bosh. This will allow the big man to sign with any other NBA team after he clears waivers. The Celtics, Mavericks and Rockets should be interested since they lack quality players from the forward positions.

For the Celtics, this is one way to get another star in the line-up as they hope to contend against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to become the top team in the Eastern Conference.

Bosh can start alongside free agency signing Al Horford in Boston and he’d be an additional option on offense for a team known for their team defense.

For both the Mavericks and Rockets, signing Bosh would be a good idea if they want to keep up with the powerhouse teams in the West, the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs.

Bosh, if healthy, can be an off the bench option in the Mavericks’ frontcourt and he can be the starting center for the Rockets, which will emphasize offense in the new NBA season under head coach Mike D’Antoni.
