That will happen in due time, but that’s the big unknown…he negotiated for the flexibility and he got it, they’re going to take their time. One guy might dictate what the next guy does and so on so forth, Lebron might be the big domino but Chris is a big piece for us to determine what we do. There are certain things we’ll be pursuing in the coming months that might address things on our team with or without Chris. We remain Chris Bosh’s best option to maximize his contract potential” (referring to sign-and-trade)
“We have agreed that regardless of whether or not he stays, we’ll be working together and talking. We’ll be assessing what options we have but it’s not often that a young athlete walks away from a significant amount of money and that’s the difference between him working for us and…doing a sign-and-trade. There are no answers until after July 1st”

Let the speculation start.
Bosh is due $17,149,243 next year in a player option. So, I'll say ...
Chris Bosh ($17.15M) for Wilson Chandler ($2.13M), David Lee (S&T $12.00M), and cash.
