04:55 PM ET 06.09 | The Charlotte Bobcats are repotedly interested in making moves this Summer and would be willing to trade the fourth pick overall in the 2013 NBA Draft for an all-star caliber player. Charlotte will have cap space to offer teams salary relief, and there are rumors that the Miami Heat will consider trading big man Chris Bosh this Summer. If the Heat do shop Bosh, the Bobcats could consider him a prime candidate. Charlotte team officials would like to build through the draft but are also aware of the pressure to improve their record while adding a franchise player to be the face of the organization.

The GOAT needs more than just Bosh.

Agreed.

In Miami, Bosh has turned into nothing but a soft power forward who takes jump shots and is afraid of the paint. Exile him to Charlotte. Maybe then Bosh might find his inside game and knock his ego down a bit.

Pat Riley would be a fool not to even think about it. How did the Lakers and Celtics stay great in the 80's? They conned other teams out of their high draft picks and gave the other team cast offs.

Soft power forward? James is posting up a lot more this season. Both have little room to operate so Bosh draws the defender out to the perimeter with his 18-20 foot jumpers, thus creating room for James to work down low.

But remember when this team was put together. James, Wade, and Pat Riley were talking about how Chris Bosh was going to be just like Kevin Garnett. Bosh was going to be the one who would play lockdown defense on the other team best front court player. Bosh was going to the one who was going to get all those rebounds. Bosh was going to be that same payer that played for the Raptors.

Bosh hasn't been the player that they thought they were getting. It's sad during the series with the Pacers that Ray Allen had more rebounds then Chris Bosh. The Heat's back up shooting guard had more rebounds the entire series then their starting power forward did. Sad.

And the Bobcats keeps getting worse. They want to be the best in being the worse. They decided to part ways w/ the only coach that brought them to the playoffs. Now they want to mess up their cap by adding a mediocre overpaid star in Bosh...

Bosh has been a 3-time all star since joining the Heat...

Bosh isn't going anywhere next year. These three guys wanted to play with each other. If the Heat were to trade any of them, the other two would have a problem and want to leave. They believe they can win and beat anyone together. This core isn't getting broken up.

Trading Bosh for the number 4 pick in this draft would be the dumbest move ever. A move MJ would make. Not Riley.

Im going to have to agree with you. But it would be a smart move to Charlotte to pick him up, but they will need more than just Bosh.

All I know is my Knicks had better not be the only team not making a move.

Bosh is not a franchise player. He was majorly over-rated in Toronto. If Miami gets offered that deal they better jump on it.

Michael needs a miracle worker to turn this failed project into a winner. Having a winning record would be a major accomplishment for the Bobcats.
