Report: Chris Bosh Not Ruling Out Return to NBA This Season

Former Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh is looking to make a return to the NBA sometime in the near future. During an interview with ESPN’s “First Take,” Bosh talked about his intentions to make a comeback.

“I’ve been in the gym. I can still play basketball. No, I’m not done yet,” said Bosh. “Yeah, I’m trying to come back. Man, I see all these guys shooting threes and not playing defense, and man, I’ve got to get some of it.”
In February of 2015, Bosh was diagnosed with blood clots for the first time, forcing him to miss the remainder of the season. He returned for the start of the 2015-16 season but was once again forced to miss the rest of the season for the same reason. Bosh failed his physical at the start of the 2016-17 season and was eventually released by the Heat on July 4, 2017.
The fourth overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft spent the first seven years of his career with the Toronto Raptors before signing with the Heat as a free agent in 2010. With the Heat, he played six years, winning two championships and averaging 18.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Bosh threw out the possibility of returning to playing as soon as this season.
“The roster spots haven’t been filled this season yet,” said Bosh. “So there’s always a possibility.”
When asked about what teams he would think about joining, Bosh mentioned that he wanted to go to a “top three” team and named the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and Raptors. To be eligible for the playoffs, he would need to sign with a team before March 1. When asked about who he would sign with between the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Raptors, Bosh replied with, “Whoever makes me the better deal.”
The 11-time All-Star has not played in an NBA game since Feb. 9, 2016, when he scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds in a loss against the San Antonio Spurs.
