A report has suggested that Chris Bosh is unhappy with the way he has been treated by the Miami Heat this past summer.
Bosh, a Heat legend who has won two NBA titles at the franchise since signing for the team in 2010, has missed the second half of the season in both of the last two years after suffering from blood clots.
He was reported to be considering retirement earlier this summer following his second blood clot, but Bosh now appears to be getting set for the new season, and was pictured in a gym alongside former teammate Dwyane Wade earlier this week.
Miami have so far been extremely careful with Bosh’s situation, not allowing him to risk a return to the court for last season’s playoffs when he seemed keen on doing so, but now Bosh may have become irritated by the Heat’s unwillingness to let him play.
Bosh has been using social media posts to show fans he is ready to play this season, but as of Wednesday the Heat have offered no indication whether they will clear the forward to play in the upcoming season.
It must not be forgotten that if Bosh is to continue playing it takes a huge chunk of Miami’s salary cap for this season, and that is believed to be an important point for the Heat.
According to the Miami Herald, the franchise would be able to ‘apply to remove Bosh’s future salaries’ after it has been one year since his last appearance, something they may want to do it they believe he cannot continue to play while staying healthy until the end of his contract.
This is a situation which is starting to get more and more ugly, and it may soon need the NBA to step in and find a solution if the two sides cannot come to a mutual decision on whether Bosh should continue playing.
