So here's a thought. Given that the most likely suitors for Bosh each have the cap space to sign him outright, the return in a sign-and-trade is likely to be a mix of young players, a few picks and a big trade exemption.
For example, if Bosh goes to Miami for Beasley and Chalmers, it would also see Toronto net a $10 million (approximately based on anticipated salaries) TE.
So with that TE on balance sheet, what might the Raptors be able to convert it into - especially in light of the presence of certain teams, such as the Hornets, who would be looking for immediate luxury tax relief.
Does Bosh signing with a cap-friendly team thus net the Raptors Okafor and Collison? What other luxury tax teams could the Raptors target?
