Bosh, Miami Heat formally part ways
    2017-July-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHRIS BOSH’S time with the Miami Heat is officially over.

Weeks after the sides came to a final agreement on how to part ways and more than a year since his last NBA appearance because of blood-clot issues, Bosh was waived by the Heat on Tuesday.

It gives Miami access to US$25.3 million in salary-cap space for this coming season, which the Heat will use to sign free agents. Bosh still gets that salary, plus US$26.8 million for next season, and in theory could continue his career — if another team declares him fit to play.

It’s unknown if that will happen.

But at least there’s finally closure on his Miami era, and the Heat announced his No. 1 jersey has been retired.

“Chris changed his life and basketball career when he came to Miami,” Heat President Pat Riley said. “And he changed our lives for the better, in a way we never would have imagined when he joined the Miami Heat. We will forever be indebted to CB for how he changed this team and led us to four trips to the NBA Finals and two NBA championships.

“He is, without a doubt, one of the greatest players in the history of the franchise.”

Bosh signed a five-year deal to stay with the Heat in 2014, shortly after LeBron James left Miami for a return to Cleveland. James, Bosh and Dwyane Wade went to the NBA Finals in all four of their seasons together in Miami, winning titles in 2012 and 2013.

Bosh’s last Miami deal was worth US$118 million. For that, he was only able to play in 97 games. “You always want what’s best for Chris, whatever that is,” Heat captain Udonis Haslem said earlier this year.

Bosh appeared in 44 games in 2014-15, his season ending at the All-Star break when the first known clot episode started. A year later, he played in 53 games and — in an eerie similarity — his season again ended at All-Star weekend, when another clot was found shortly after he landed in Toronto for the 2016 All-Star Game.(SD-Agencies)
