Alright I was just thinking of this, assuming we sign Amare Stoudemire as rumored.
How far would you go to make sure Chicago/Miami/New Jersey don't get Bosh which would entice Lebron/Wade into signing there. I'm just talking about getting involved in a 3 team trade between Toronto and another team (maybe Houston) and helping those sides work out a deal.
Toronto wants to sign/trade Bosh...Bosh wants to get that 6th year...
Example would be with the Houston - Toronto rumors that we've been hearing. Make it into a 3 way trade, where we would give up Chandler + draft pick to Toronto in addition to whatever Houston was offering to Toronto. Bosh goes to Houston, we get nothing in return. The effects of this would be taking away the other big name max FA away from Chicago/Miami/New Jersey which would really hurt their chances of landing Lebron.
I kind of rushed this post, so I don't know what kind of feedback ill get. Doesn't have to be Houston...just any team interested in doing a sign-trade for Bosh, but doesn't have enough to give Toronto.
