Bosh to join Wade in Miami

Source: Bosh to join Wade By Chris Broussard

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are teaming up together on the Miami Heat, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Whether LeBron James, the kingpin of this summer's celebrated free agent class, will join them remains to be seen. James will announce his decision Thursday night at 9 ET during a one-hour special on ESPN.

Wade and Bosh are expected to announce their decision on Wednesday, according to the source.

James or not, the Heat could emerge as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference with Wade and Bosh aboard. Wade, who led the Heat to the NBA title in 2006, is re-signing with the club, while Bosh will leave the Toronto Raptors after seven years with the club.

Both players are expected to get the maximum amount allowable under the league's collective bargaining agreement, though the addition of James could change the players' salaries. Contracts cannot be officially signed until July 8.

It was not immediately clear whether Bosh will sign with Miami outright or join the Heat through a sign-and-trade deal. Bosh could earn $125 million over six years via sign-and-trade, but only $96 million over five without it.

"Either way, he's definitely going to Miami," the source said.

Is he going to coach? The other guy sucks IMO.

By "the other guy", do you mean the coach that's made the playoffs the last two seasons with Dwyane Wade and a bunch of scrubs?

Also the same guy who coached the #1 Defense in the NBA with those scrubs.

Your #1 defense was very suspect, they were exposed in the playoffs. Care to share some info on your #1 defense? Link?

He looks way over his head, I hope he does continue to coach the Heat.

Very exposed? They lost to the team who was a few minutes away from winning a title against the Lakers, on LA's home floor. I wouldn't call that "being exposed", I'd call that being beaten by a far superior team. Again, with Wade and a bunch of scrubs.

It was the Celtics defense that locked down that Heat offense to secure the win in that series. They doubled Wade (with the exception of one game where he went off) for most of the series in textbook fashion.

Meh, none of this matters anyway. You or I could coach a team with Wade, Bosh and LeBron and still win 60 games and a Championship.
