    Default Dirk Nowitzski Opts Out

    http://sports.espn.go.com/dallas/nba...ory?id=5339661

    Hmmm...does this change things for Bosh?

    Will Lebron or Wade maybe rethink their partnership with Bosh?

    Does MIami have another option?

    Does Chicago have another option? How about Houston?

    How does this impact on the Raptors?

    This is fun! He is leaving 21 mill. on the table. Cuban must be turning purple!

    Dallas is Chris Bosh hometown so if Toronto does shell out the cash for Dirk there might be a sign and trade at works if Bosh wishes to go there.

    The only thing is how much are you willing to pay for Dirk who will be 32 at the start of next season.

    Dirk is looking for a 4 year deal worth of 96 million. It is reported that Dallas is willing to offer him a 4 year deal worth about 86 million. Dirk is not going any where.

    Lebron and Wade know Bosh and what he can do on the court better than most of us fans here. As much as it is the new cool thing here on Raptor Land to bash bosh and question his talent and his skills, there is reason why most GMs in NBA are after him and also there is a reason that Wade and Lebron prefer him over the other PFs in the league and hence he was invited to Miami last weekend.

    Dirk being a free agent does not make any difference with the value of Bosh.

    He's not going anywhere. It makes no difference except he'll just sign another deal that starts out at a lower salary the first year.

    Yah, I'd say this is more about Dirk guaranteeing himself a contract till he retires, that way if he's injured or something next season he'll still be set.
