    According to Chad Ford of ESPN.Com, sources have told him Bosh has narrowed it down to 5 teams he wants to play for next year, including Toronto, LA, Chicago, New York, & Miami.

    Snippet-
    Bosh likes that option, sources told Ford, because he'd get one more year on his contract and could make more money.

    Sources said the Raptors prefer a sign-and-trade if Bosh is intent on leaving as well. They likely would want a big man to replace the 6-10, 230-pound Bosh in the lineup.

    One source said Bosh's decision hinges on where LeBron James signs.

    "If LeBron decides to go to either New York or Chicago, I think that's where you'll see Chris land," the source told Ford. "If LeBron stays in Cleveland, I think the process is more wide open." Continue Reading>>>


    Looks like we can stop with the Bosh to Portland sign and trade rumors, because for a S&T to work, he'd have to WANT to come here.

    Apparently, there is still one team Bosh prefers but it was not mentioned on that list. There is a little hope for Portland, but I doubt it. When was the last time a player openly wanted to come to Portland? Once they get here, they love it, but persuading them to come here in the first place is the hard part.

    Really? Way to be a follower and not a leader Bosh.

    I'm not sure why Bosh, his agent or the Raptors would float some kind of "wish list". Fewer suitors equals lower price, though in Bosh's case, that might not be as applicable considering he's a max guy.

    Either way, wouldn't trust much of the "news" that comes out of anywhere this time of year.

    I think the "wish list" was already common knowledge about where he was leaning towards wanting to play. He's getting the MAX wherever he goes, so I don't think he's hurting his value in this case. Now if this were during the season and he had came out with this wish list and wanted to be dealt at the deadline, then it really does hinder his value, but the Raps know and Bosh know the way for him to get the most money and leave is via sign and trade. Toronto doesn't have to accept a crumby S&T offer from the Bulls for example because they hold some of the cards too in regards to money, which is why I don't think they'll get low-balled on some offers.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
