Nowitzki asked Bosh if he wants to play in Dallas

Quote:
There is at least one player who could significantly help the Mavericks’ quest for a championship: Toronto Raptors forward (and Dallas native) Chris Bosh(notes).

There has been speculation Bosh could be moved before the trade deadline if the Raptors feel they have no way of re-signing the coveted free agent next summer. An NBA source with knowledge of Toronto’s plans told Yahoo! Sports that Raptors officials are still hopeful the team will improve enough to convince Bosh to re-sign. That didn’t stop Nowitzki from chatting up Bosh when both visited South Africa with the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders program.

“I was like, ‘So, you coming back to Dallas?’ ” Nowitzki said. “He just said he doesn’t know and everything was so wide open to him.“I think everything right now is speculation. I don’t like speculation. I like to focus on what I got.”

That’s a wise approach considering one substantial obstacle will make it difficult for the Mavericks to lure Bosh if he hits the free-agent market: money. The Mavericks, who are expected to be over the salary cap, would likely either need to persuade Nowitzki to take less money himself or convince the Raptors to do a sign-and-trade deal.

Still, there are no limits, however, on Cuban’s creativity.

“We can be a player,” Cuban said in regards to the general free-agent market. “Everybody thinks its all about cap room. But I don’t think all the guys that are free agents – they’ve been in this league long enough – don’t want to be on teams involved in a rebuilding process. There’s a lot to risk. You want to go to a team where you can compete."

Dirk and Bosh would be a strange combination. I don't think it'll happen no matter how creative Cuban is.

Kobe wants Bosh in LA, Nowitzki wants him in Dallas, which allstar wants to play in Toronto?


Anyone?

It's a good deal if we can get Dirk in return.

if the Raptors ever make the finals, they'll have a hard time beating the (other team plus) refs too. A very hard time.

both players require too man y touches. If Bosh is not a #1 option on a team his numbers will drop out of the sky, beucase watching games here is makes me sick how many touches Bosh actually gets, its like pas to Bosh x3, then if he misses all three, give him one more chance, then pass to another team mate.

they can't sign Bosh period, unless they renounce dirk (and he's willing to come back on the veteran minimum )
