Reports: Bosh, Heat agree to amicable split

Chris Bosh last played in the NBA in 2016.

Chris Bosh had a decorated career as the starting power forward for the Miami Heat. He went to four straight Finals, the Heat winning two.

But it appears that time has officially come to an end, Bosh having suffered from blood clots in recent seasons and the Heat not wanting to take the clear risks that come with them.

Per ESPN: “The Miami Heat, Chris Bosh and the players’ association have tentatively agreed to a resolution that would allow all parties to move on, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.”

The Miami Herald actually broke the news a day before ESPN, reporting the following:

Chris Bosh has told family members that an agreement has been struck among the NBA, the Heat, the union and himself for Bosh to part ways with the Heat at some point in the coming weeks, with the Heat receiving maximum cap relief, an NBA-employed source said in early May and reiterated Tuesday.

The source said in early May that Bosh had reached a unique agreement that would purge him from the Heat’s cap before the start of free agency but also give him the opportunity to play again, if he chose, without salary-cap consequences for the Heat.

 

Bosh’s NBA career may not be over. By all accounts (including his), he still wants to play — somewhere.

Bosh, 33, is 6-foot-11 and carries career averages of 19.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
