Chris Bosh isn’t looking to take a pay cut after all.
It was widely reported Tuesday that free agents Bosh and Dwyane Wade would take big pay cuts to keep the Miami Heat’s Big Three together while allowing LeBron James to get the maximum $22 million salary. But just one day later, the agent of Bosh and Wade said that was far from true.
“All the BS you are reading is just that,” agent Henry Thomas told NBA.com of the reports, via FOX Sports.
In fact, sources told FOX Sports Ohio that Bosh would actually be seeking a five-year deal worth around $90 million, rather than the $11 million per year that was reported earlier.
Miami was looking to have around $12 million in salary cap space to build around James, Bosh and Wade, but that certainly will not be the case if Bosh and James both get what they want.
The Big Three reportedly are giving Heat president Pat Riley a “window” to improve the team.
