Besides, Orlando already has the gigantic, and long-term, contracts of Howard and Lewis, so why would they want a third huge contract for a big man. Also, they would likely have to give up Turkoglu, as he is their biggest expiring, and I am sure that they have no intentions to do that.

As far as the west goes, what team needs a power forward/center and has the money to sign Bosh and can also offer him the opportunity to be a franchise player, all while being a team that can contend for the conference finals? I can't find any.

Of course, we should really consider that this is probably just some overly early speculation. Otherwise, Mariotti wouldn't be using Orlando and the western conference as the places that Chris is most likely to "flee" to. He may be (relatively) ignorant towards Toronto sports, but he isn't stupid.
