The list of five teams -- Toronto plus the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and New York Knicks, sources said -- was given to Toronto management in case the Raptors want to construct a sign-and-trade deal (assuming Bosh doesn't re-sign with Toronto).
"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."
Good news for Knicks fans that are hoping to see a LeBron/Bosh combo.
Reading that the Bulls are courting Phil Jackson through "back channels."
If Jackson returns to Chicago, LeBron and maybe Bosh should follow.
God I hope not.
I was reading an article earlier today and it had an interesting proposal. Knicks do a sign and trade deal where they offer David Lee and Eddy Curry (don't laugh, his contract expires after next season so he actually has value now) for Bosh and Hedo Turkoglu. Turkoglu has been a nightmare acquisition for the Raptors, hates being in Toronto and is owed $40 mil over the next 4 years. The Raptors are desperate to get rid of him and the Knicks offering to take on his contract would certainly picque Toronto's interest even if it means they have to have fat Eddy gaining weight on the bench for a season.
Bosh would be a great addition to the Knicks and our chances at signing Lebron go up ten-fold if we get Bosh. Turkoglu is an excellent role player who can play 3 positions, play defense and those long arms cover plenty of floor space on defense.
