The idea that Wes has been boxed out of the inner circle is something that has been talked about for the last week or so. People I've spoken to have said similar things about Wes pushing Chicago. I've talked to another person who said that Maverick Carter will be in town Wednesday. I can't say for sure if it's for personal reasons, or for a meeting with either the Knicks or Nets...will keep digging.
The key to this whole thing as been the decision of Chris Bosh. Do the Cavs have what it takes to deal with Toronto? Does Bosh get paid and head for Ohio? Or does he head to South Beach with Wade? Does he join Wade in Chicago?
The best move for both he and Toronto would be a sign and trade to Houston. Bosh is from Dallas and he's made it clear in NY that he's a kid from the South. It seems all signs i'm getting indicate that the Bosh/Wade team in South Beach is far from a given.
Where does that leave NJ? Would Bosh consider teaming with James in NJ for less than the max?
Again, all these questions have answers. And things will start to unravel once Chris Bosh makes his decision.
