Bosh's future subject to heavy speculation
Chris Bosh's agent has a denied a report in the New York Times that indicated Bosh and superstar LeBron James will be members of the Chicago Bulls once the free agency dust settles.
Bosh, who's spent his first seven seasons with the Toronto Raptors, is part of the most anticipated free agent class in league history, along with James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat.
Sunday's Times report cited an anonymous NBA team executive who said that he thinks the signing of Bosh and two-time league most valuable player James by the Bulls is "a done deal."
Agent Henry Thomas, who represents both Bosh and Wade, quickly denied the report.
"Completely untrue," agent Thomas told NBA.com via email. "[Bosh] hasn’t decided anything."
ESPN.com reported on Monday that the Nets have planned to meet with all three prized players separately once the the free agency period begins after midnight on July 1.
The Nets were an NBA-worst 12-70 last season, but have a new Russian owner, billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, have hired 2006 coach of the year Avery Johnson and plan to move into a new arena in Brooklyn as early as 2012.
Bosh is also scheduled to meet with Chicago, according to the ESPN report.
The frequent spotting in recent years of James in New York has also led to speculation that the Knicks will be in heavy pursuit.
