This situation is odd. If he does sign on to play for another team, doesn't that prove that he could play? Wouldn't that void the Heats claim that he can't? Is it at the discretion of one medical staff vs another? Would his new teams medical staff basically have to sign off on him playing not being a risk to his life like the Heats think it is? What if something bad does happen? That would be awful.

I don't know how to feel about this, but Bosh has the right to make his choice. I just hope the new medical staff is as diligent as Miami's was, or maybe that Miami's was in fact disingenuous on orders to try and waive his contract.

I have to imagine that if he can really play, Cleveland is the heavy favorite. Remember he's still getting paid the balance of his contract with Miami even after being waived. That will be three max contracts in total from his career, plus the added endorsement money he got from Miami's huge exposure during the LeBron years. I would guess money is not a factor to him.

But I don't know enough about his condition to say whether or not he'll be a viable player again. Is it the sort of thing where he'd be fine playing 10 minutes per game? Or is the risk no different playing 40 against playing one? We'll see.

I do want to throw out a few more possible destinations, based on things I've read/heard about Bosh in the past.

San Antonio/GSW would both love him on a limited minutes basis, and I wouldn't be too surprised, if he's dead set on contending, if he chose one of them. I think Cleveland is the favorite just because he knows how to play with LeBron, but I'm not really sure their relationship is so great that it's a lock. LeBron and Wade are obviously closer than Bosh was with either of them, he's not part of the banana boat gang for whatever that's worth, and I've at least heard rumblings that Bosh wasn't close to either of those two by the end of LeBron's tenure. Not that he hates them or anything, just that he wasn't as tight with them. If his relationship with LeBron has soured but he still wants to compete, those seem like the teams. San Antonio especially has the Texas connection.

Dallas comes to mind as well. He's from there, and he said in the past that the reason he didn't sign with Houston in 2014 was that he felt like he needed a break from the insane scrutiny that comes with playing for a super team. If he still feels that way and just wants to play basketball rather than add to his legacy in a meaningful way, doing it in your home town seems like a fun way to go, especially since most players love playing for Mark Cuban so much. The locker room could use him in a post-Dirk world.

Here's the exact rule:

For the Heat to medically waive Bosh, he has to not have played for a year (check), and a doctor jointly decided by the league and the Player's Association has to decide that his condition is career-ending. If that doctor determines that it is, then the Heat can waive him with no cap implications. They still have to pay him regardless.

HOWEVER.

If Bosh plays 25 games in one season with a new team, the rest of Bosh's contract goes back onto Miami's books. That's a really dangerous situation. They could spend all of their cap space this summer thinking Bosh is gone, and then Bosh might suddenly return to their salary sheet and push them into the tax. The Heat didn't make the playoffs this year. They probably won't be true contenders next year, and Micky Arison has avoided the tax in the past (see the Mike Miller amnesty, for example). This could be a really interesting situation.

Re-look into the situation when you have time, Miami is good.


The Heat is optimistic that because of a change in the labor agreement, its parting with Bosh not only would clear his $25.3 million salary off next year’s cap, but would permanently remove his $52.1 million in remaining salary from the cap even if he resumes his career elsewhere. - See more at: http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articles/though-nothing-yet-official-bosh-agrees-to-amicable-parting-with-heat-468310.html#sthash.QDy3yAY4.dpuf



Hopefully Pat can get 1 to 2 free agents to sign on with Miami this upcoming free agency period.

Blazers had this happen I think with Darius Miles. He was injured and insurance paid him and was waived then he came back for another team and Blazers got the shaft.

He would be a very good 4th option player in Cleveland. Hell he was a very good first option in the playoffs for the Heat his last year. Only thing that stopped him this year was the broken elbow that was supposed to be season ending. He couldn't find a rhythm after that but, averaged 21-5-6 on 50% the month before the injury. He was gearing up nicely for the playoffs beforehand.

(hopefully that link works)

This is a special negotiation between Miami, NBA, NBPA and Bosh resulting in a 1-time use exemption taking place on the CBA effective July 1st. The Heat will not be liable for Bosh in any way moving forward even if he signed on with another team, which by the looks of what's being negotiated it doesn't even seem like that will be possible. So Bosh's NBA playing career is over, he's getting all the money owed to him (mostly payed by Insurance) and the Heat have an immediate cap space relief.

MIA is in a pretty interesting spot this FA period. Spotrac had them at about $95.2M in active contracts before this which is about $5.8M of cap space. However, that includes $6.3M of non-guaranteed money to Wanye Ellington. It also includes a $3M player option that Waiters is sure to decline. Willie Reed I imagine opts out of his minimum deal as well - should at the very least land the room exception from a team like Boston or GS that will be looking for cheap center play. And now they're out of Bosh's deal.

All factored in they're probably going to have about $40M of cap space. I don't think Blake or Hayward are signing there. Wouldn't make sense to sign Lowry when you already have Dragic. I'll be real interested to see how they spend their cap. I would guess they probably try for 2-3 guys that are good pieces. And hope to land a major star down the road in FA. Don't see the major star happening for them now.

After hearing of the special exemption, good for the Heat! I wonder how the Heat might've been with Durant, Whiteside and maybe Wade. Not sure if they could've done that, since Bosh was still on the books at the time. I always liked the Heat. Hopefully they can sign some big name to help out Whiteside. They'd definitely make the playoffs next year.

At this point, if the guy really wants to play, it's his own choice. I think teams gotta have him sign a waiver or something. Whoever takes him up on it better hope nothing bad happens or else their franchise will be tainted for years. With that being said... Sam Presti, make it happen.

:facepalm:


under the CBA that goes into place July 1, if a medical panel comes to an agreement that it is no longer considered safe for Bosh to continue his career, that would end the risk of Bosh's cap charge or luxury-tax hit returning to the Heat's book.

Meaning it is over for Bosh playing in the NBA. Done. Finish. Kaput.

This is what is expected to happen July 1. Hence all the negotiating beforehand.

I've stated this before.

I believe that Bosh will play again, maybe at the beginning reports will come out that; whatever team is going to take it slow and he will be on a minutes restriction. But near the all star break he will be playing normal starters minutes.

He will help whatever team he is on, and might win more rings. He will be an All Star player again.

Bosh played with LeBron, I would suspect he would be in LeBron's court sooner than the Warriors. And if he does play again, any team would pick Bosh at vet minimum. It's just a matter of where Bosh wants to go, and that team will profit from a high money player at the lowest salary.

As to the Heat being "off the hook?" Insurance is covering most of the guaranteed $ owed to Bosh. The Heat shouldn't have cap space tied into his situation. They're still paying up for the then max deal offered to Bosh. Miami managed the situation better than most teams would too.

People are still sour from the Big Three era. Plus, some people will side with players rather than owners because "they gave them the contract, therefore they should pay up." Both agendas are pointless, especially since Bosh isn't being wronged. If he were wronged, it would be a more litigious situation.

Agreed. I'm still not sure why this is potentially being allowed. I can understand an argument if he legitimately is done and not playing this or any season, but that's not how I'm interpreting this. It seems like the Heat can just dump his contract completely regardless of whether he plays as some get out of jail free card.

GS is too good of a fit he can eventually start there.

No, I don't think you, like most of the posters in this thread, understand anything at all about what this section of the new CBA come July 1st really means. This is only happening IF all parties involved agree that Bosh's playing career is COMPLETELY over in the NBA. There's is nothing in there that would include a a path for a return and resumption of his NBA playing career. It's akin to a permanent ban from NBA play. Which is why if this goes through it will be a 0% chance Bosh will sign with another NBA team.

Unfortunately, I expect the misinformed speculation to continue.

IF they don't come to this agreement, then Bosh will be kept on the injury report as OUT, just as the entire past season, for the remaining 2 years of his contract which is up in 2019.

I understand that. I don't like Bosh being forced out against his will over money ... if Bosh can get a team to let him play he should get to do it. A man should be able to choose to risk his life if he wants, and the Heat manipulating that bothers me. It's not just about the money.

Didn't Jordan retire around this same age and come back? I'd argue this time off will have Bosh fresh and I'm certain if he wants to play again he's been training all the time. If Chris wants to come back I have to believe he thinks the risk are minimal. Just because the Heat were better off just washing their hands doesn't mean whatever plan Chris' team has in place isn't a safe plan.

I understand that. I don't like Bosh being forced out against his will over money ... if Bosh can get a team to let him play he should get to do it. A man should be able to choose to risk his life if he wants, and the Heat manipulating that bothers me. It's not just about the money.

He is getting his money. Again, it's not a forceout. It has to be agreed by all parties involved (NBA, NBPA, Bosh and Doctors) otherwise the situation will continue as it has for the past 3 seasons for Bosh. The NBA is not an extreme sport, like Motocross or Formula1 or the X-Games where there is a considerable life risk that's involved, expected and understood. The risk level for Bosh dieing on the court is too high and something the NBA is trying to prevent.

Didn't Jordan retire around this same age and come back? I'd argue this time off will have Bosh fresh and I'm certain if he wants to play again he's been training all the time. If Chris wants to come back I have to believe he thinks the risk are minimal. Just because the Heat were better off just washing their hands doesn't mean whatever plan Chris' team has in place isn't a safe plan.

Blood clots are serious, you could possibly die without notice. If Bosh were to come back, he couldn't play back to backs or be on long flights while on medication. If bosh was on blood thinners and took a blow to the head he could bleed uncontrollably to death. he would have to wait a day or two so it can dissapate from your body until you could play.

Too many risk factors to play 50 games a year. For minimum contract. He has nothing left to prove.

Again I defer to the person who's body it is. It's not like Bosh isn't a mindful guy or doesn't have other interest. So if he's fighting this hard to get back I have to assume he's ok with what his doctors are telling him. If indeed he does have to miss a ton of games than his career more then likely over. However Bosh seemed very confident in his ability to continue his career. Until all the other teams decline him I'll give Chris the benefit of the doubt. The Heat had no incentive to work with Bosh to get him back in a Heat uni.

Deaths in Formula1 since 1980? 10. Deaths of NBA players since 1980? 12 (drugs are bad kids).

Seriously though, how do you know Bosh has to agree to end his career?

Who dropped dead on an NBA court on live TV?

That's what's being reported.

Bulls crushed Cavs this last season, imagine had we played them in the playoffs we would have beaten them. Now give us Bosh and it is a wrap.

I mean if there was something saying Bosh could never play again wouldn't literally every big name broadcaster know this?

Bosh can still stop 18/10 every night. You can bet teams are interested regardless of health concerns. He's made enough money and has two rings. If he's doing this, the guy just loves basketball.

Or he just wants to go out on his terms.

If he is on blood thinners the danger is bleeding out internally from a hard hit, not clots, you don't clot when on thinners, its the opposite, your blood doesn't coagulate and you bleed easier and longer. I have been on thinners for decades, they first told me to avoid trauma and lots of sports were not recommended. Something that might bruise a normal player could bleed internally, a blow to the head instead of a concussion could be a brain bleed.

This isn't a little bit of risk, its high risk compared to a normal athlete.
A superficial cut may take 5-7 minutes to stop bleeding during a game. If his diet isn't consistent it can affect in INR and alter the blood chemistry and dosage. Going off medication for a day won't reduce clotting time, they usually want you off for 2-4 weeks for surgery or even skin cancer stitches.
