Broussard: LeBron Wants Chris Bosh In Cleveland

LeBron James wants to stay in Cleveland and he wants Chris Bosh to join him.  That, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard, who made the assertion this morning on ESPNRadio's Mike and Mike in the Morning program.  According to Broussard, part of the reason there has been a delay in LeBron's announcement is he is trying to convince Bish to come to Cleveland with him.  That could only happen, of course, if the Toronto Raptors worked out a sign-and-trade for Bosh with the Cavaliers.

Bosh had reportedly stated that, while he did want to play with James, it had to be in Chicago or Miami.  Bosh wants to grow is brand, and feels that can only happen in a bigger market.  Perhaps, but Bosh should look no further than LeBron himself to see that big cities are no longer necessary when it comes to global icon status.

"It can happen, it's just a matter of convincing Chris Bosh to agree to it," Broussard said on the show, referring to the Cavaliers ability to strike a deal with the Raptors.

Hypothetically, any deal the Cavaliers make with Toronto would likely include multiple picks and players such as Anderson Varejao, J.J. Hickson and Delonte West.

For their part, every side involved has confirmed the reports - at least regarding the Cavaliers interest in Bosh.  Henry Thomas, Bosh's agent, confirmed that the Cavaliers have called regarding his client.   Toronto has also confirmed that the Cavaliers have discussed sign-and-trade deals with Toronto. 

Stay tuned....
