    Default Colangelo Won't Likely Be Able to Pull a Similar Deal

    Chris Sheridan is referring to the Joe Johnson to Atlanta deal.

    Jordan (Toronto) - What is the main thing Bryan Colangelo needs to get back in a sign and trade with Bosh? Salary relief, draft picks or young talent? I personally think Utah is the sleeper team, offering up Kirilenko and multiple 1st rounders similar to the Joe Johnson sign and trade Colangelo did in Phoenix. A big reason why is because Colangelo is all about getting the headlines and signing HIS guy, he doesn't wanna inherit someone elses big signing, he wants to be the man.

    Chris Sheridan (3:27 PM) - I'm not so sure Utah would do Kirilenko and the Knicks' pick for Bosh, much less multiple picks. I think Colangelo will try to get back the best total overall package, but I don't think anybody will offer him anything like what he got from Atlanta in the Joe Johnson deal.

    There are 29 teams who'd love to get Bosh and half of them are teams Bosh should consider possible fits. Here's hoping BC can swindle one of them into giving us their farm for our prize stud.

    Hmmm .... Sheridan thinks Washington shouldn't be forgotten in the mix this summer too.

    Lance (Pdx ) - Hey Chris, Does H-town really have a chance at Bosh? Seems like Chicago, Miami, and OKC have the best chance if he doesn't re-sign with the Raps (wink-wink)???

    Chris Sheridan (3:11 PM) - when we did our staff survey on Bosh's future (it ran abou a week ago), I mentioned that the Washington Wizards should not be ignored. Chris has a young daughter in the D.C. area that he doesn't get to see much, and that factor is a stronger pull than a lot of folks realize. But aside from that possibility, I think Miami, NY and Chicago are the three frontrunners, and NY would have an edge because they could do a sign-and-trade with David Lee. Chicago would have to sign him outright, and Miami would either have to do the same or try to do a Beasley-Bosh sign-and-trade, and I don;t see the Raptors biting on Beasley.

    I am being the ultimate optimistic here, but why do we have to sign and trade Bosh for say Wade, Why can't we resign Bosh and get Wade in a sign and trade scenario? They could offer anyone on the Roster (except Bosh of course)

    Imagine a roster of

    C - Johnson
    PF - Bosh
    SF - Weems
    SG -Wade
    PG - Jack

    Why would Wade want to come to Toronto? He won a ring in Miami, its a proven environment. The Raptors are a team that has done nothing and they have GM with a flawed basketball philosophy. Not a fun place in the eyes of most I am sure.

    Not that I think Wade is going to Toronto, but I can certainly imagine him leaving Miami. Riley mortgaged the team for a Championship and they've been paying for it ever since. They've got really very little talent outside of Wade, and I don't see them adding all that much this summer. Even if they get a good PF like Boozer or Amare, they'll still be thin on talent.
