Description: According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Chris Bosh is finalizing a five-year, $118 million contract with the Heat.
Insight: After LeBron James announced he was going back to the Cavaliers on Friday, Bosh was expected to sign with the Rockets, but the Heat were able to give him an extra $32 million. With James gone, Bosh will handle a much larger offensive workload than he did in the past few years.

Insight: Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James can all opt out of their contracts this summer. There's been some buzz about James possibly leaving Miami for his hometown Cavaliers but ultimately we'd expect all three to return to South Beach next season.

Insight: We're assuming that includes Chris Bosh, who some have speculated could be moved in a trade this summer. Aside from Bosh, who is under contract through at least next season, the Heat will also have to make decisions about Ray Allen (expected to opt out of his current contract) and Chris Andersen (unrestricted free agent). The team has already said it will pick up point guard Mario Chalmers' $4 million option for 2013-14.
 
6/23/2013 10:45:00 AM
Description: In a roundtable discussion with Brian Windhorst and Israel Gutierrez Sunday on SportsCenter, ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith suggested that the Heat could look to deal center Chris Bosh this offseason.
Insight: Stephen A. probably isn't alone in this sentiment. Although he did play tough defense on Tim Duncan throughout most of the series, Bosh vanished in Game 7, going scoreless in 28 minutes of action. The Big Three is clearly only a Big Two at this point and trading Bosh now while his value is still relatively high might be the Heat's best option. The returns of Derrick Rose and Danny Granger next season will only make things tougher for the defending champs. It's also worth noting that LeBron James can opt out of his contract after 2014.
 
6/14/2013 8:04:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Bosh was hit with a $5,000 fine after flopping in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Insight: There's been plenty of flopping in the playoffs and the Heat seem to be doing most of it. LeBron James was fined for flopping a few weeks ago and Dwyane Wade has had a few questionable plays as well. Bosh scored 20 points Thursday in Game 4, his highest point total since Game 3 of the Chicago series.
 
4/17/2013 7:51:00 PM
Description: Miami center Chris Bosh has been removed from Wednesday's starting lineup, according to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.
Insight: Udonis Haslem will start. Dwyane Wade is the lone member of the Big 3 playing Wednesday's game. Bosh had a strong year, averaging 16.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks and shooting 53.5 percent from the field.
