"Pros" and "cons" in re-signing Bosh - UPDATE: Walsh doesn't think CB4 is a max guy
Seeing how a max contract would likely pay Bosh in upwards of $21 million dollars per season, perhaps we should start a list of "pros" and "cons" in re-signing Bosh this summer.
I mean, perhaps we seriously should explore more feasible options for this team come this summer. Do we really want a maximum contract player on a sub-par basketball team? :confused:
Donny Walsh doesn't think Bosh is a max money guy
For similar reasons, Walsh will have to decide whether Chris Bosh is worthy of a max deal if he strikes out on LeBron. Sources familiar with Walsh’s thinking are convinced that he does not regard Bosh as being on the same level as James and Wade, who will be the only two clear-cut max players on the market. “That’s the fallacy with the max,” one prominent agent said. “It allows you to buy Chris Bosh for the same price as LeBron James.” In fact, another person familiar with Walsh’s strategy said if it came down to deciding whether to keep David Lee or sign Bosh to a max deal, Walsh would choose Lee. “There are questions about whether Bosh is the kind of player who can carry a team by himself,” the person said. “He certainly hasn’t done it in Toronto.”
