Exclamation Bosh willing to stay if Hedo is traded

http://www.thestar.com/iphone/sports...ecides-to-stay

Quote:
According to a source close to Bosh's entourage, the forward isn't opposed to staying north of the border.

"Chris loves Toronto and would like nothing more than to win as a Raptor" said the source who's desire it was to remain anonymous.

"The latest Turkoglu rumours have made him put his free agency decision on hold as long as the Raptors can make a move soon."

It goes without saying that if the Raptors could acquire some talent in return for Turkoglu and add another piece through this deep free agency pool, the Raptors set up would be a lot more enticing to Chris than it currently is.

The link isn't working. But if this is true... things can get very interesting.

hopefully if there's truth to this then BC will pull something quickly rather than waiting on Chris to make a decision before moving Hedo (as he claimed he was doing in a report a few days ago)

It says nothing about Chris being willing to resign if Hedo is traded, pure speculation that if Hedo is moved for some great talent that Chris might be willing to resign.

Bosh is gone, has been for a while, get used to it.

You would think that Bosh would of outlined his thoughts to BC.
Comments coming from a Bosh entrouge member is like listening to a bunch of guys in a dressing room after a pick up game ... all talk and rarely any substance.

guarantee I wouldnt, cause if he stays the team will be stuck in mediocraty for years until Bosh is eventually traded.

I'm sorry but I love the Turk for Arenas trade. Arenas had a 29 ppg season a few seasons ago for crying out loud!! I don't think motivation is an issue for Arenas as it is for Turk. If he can stay healthy and disciplined I'm all for this trade..

If anything when Bosh leaves we will still have a 20+ppg scorer!

I want him to stay so that the media in the U.S can STFU! But unfortunatly he's a goner. And if i would have to eat my words there then everyone who's predicted him leaving would have to as well, which is about 99% of this forum including you.

oh yeah cuz the alternative is really bright right? Go back into rebuilding and be starless for a few years probably be at bottom tier of the eastern conference, loose more respect amongst the NBA players and even the ones playing for us with any talent will want out, have a young core that is not experienced or has any kind of leadership. I know Bosh has his own leadership issues, but it is something over nothing. Also add to this our coaching staff woes :facepalm: and of course then there is bargs, God knows if he will be able to do anything once teams start double teaming him.

We can have Toronto stuck in this endless cycle of developing a star and then watch him walk as he is budding like VC/T-MAC, now Bosh or we can retain one and see if we can get out of this stupid repetitious cycle we seem to be caught in. This BS needs to stop and let it stop with Bosh lets show the league the Raptors are not craptors and can build around a star. We have Bosh who wants to play in Toronto, not a lot of stars are really comfortable with that idea of playing in Canada. Finally we got one guy who is recognized amongst the elite in the NBA wanting to actually play here and now all we can say is let him walk geez!

BC prove to me your name is not just a subset of your fathers accomplishments in Arizona, Prove to me you can actually build a team around a star whose willing to stay here in T.O. You have probably learned from all your mistakes here in the last 3 years (quick fixes dont work) and please bring in a real head coach.

i'm sure if both Bargs and hedo were off this roster, he'd even be more inclined on returning.

my summer rebuild to keep bosh

collison, okafor and posey for turk and bargs

calderon for diaw

okafor/johnson
bosh/davis
diaw/posey
demar/weems
collison/jack

it's not chicago with lebron, miami with wade or la with kobe, but it's a pretty decent looking team if you don't pay attention to the contracts.

One of the links doesn't work and the other links to a story from April that doesn't mention Turkoglu at all.
