Chris Bosh, who has not played with the Miami Heat since February 9th, is drawing interest from the Chicago Bulls. Bosh has missed all of this season and parts of the last two seasons due to experiencing blood clots that could have caused him his life.
Even though Miami has refused to allow Bosh to play, they continue to hold onto him rather than trade or waive the forward. When Miami finally waives him, the Chicago Bulls plan on pursuing the big man, hopeful to reunite him with Dwyane Wade.
Reunion in the Windy City?
Bulls reportedly would be “at the front of the line” to try and sign Chris
Throughout his career, Bosh has averaged 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, and .8 steals throughout his career. These statistics would be beneficial to a Bulls team looking to compete for an NBA championship, especially considering the championship experience Bosh would bring to the table.
For Bosh to be able to play with the Bulls, he would have to first pass a physical before any deal could be passed by the NBA. With Miami holding any news regarding Bosh to themselves, it is unclear as to if the forward would be able to pass a physical.
It is not yet known how effective Bosh will be when he returns for his long break from playing, but Chicago has nothing to lose. They have not played as well as expected even though they have a roster full of superstars with Wade, Jimmy Butler, and Rajon Rondo.
Bosh would be a great fit with this roster due to the fact that they would know he is able to take a back seat to other stars. He did it with Wade and LeBron James with the Miami Heat when they won back-to-back titles, and would be able to do it again if signed in Chicago.
Considering all Bosh has been through, the world is rooting for him to exceed and come back better than even, especially since the Heat have screwed him even though he believes he is ready to play. He could very well come back as an All-Star or as somebody who is only deserving of a few minutes. Either way, somebody giving him the chance to prove he is still a star is the right thing to do.
