Report: Bulls interested in signing Bosh after he's waived
After failing his physical in September, Chris Bosh's future remains uncertain.
However, should he consider a comeback next season, ESPN's Marc Stein reports the Chicago Bulls could be interested in the 11 time all-star.
If Bosh, who turns 33 in March, makes it back onto the floor next season, word is that the Chicago Bulls are already plotting a run and will be at the front of the line to try to sign him.
On February 9th, one year anniversary of Bosh's last game, the Heat will be able to apply for salary cap relief to remove Bosh from their cap. Doing so will clear cap space for the Heat to use in free agency. But should Bosh play 25 games with another team, his contract will then return to the Heat's cap. Because of this, some NBA executives reportedly believe the team could wait until the March 1st buyout deadline to waive him. This would make Bosh ineligible to play in the playoffs due to league rules.
As of today, Bosh himself is unsure of what the future holds.
A move to Chicago would reunite Bosh with his former Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade if he's able to get cleared by the Bulls doctors.
