Could Chris Bosh be in a Suns Uniform next season?

The Miami Heat were supposed to be the leagues top team for the next, "Not four, not five, not six, not seven..." years or so. They were a team crowned a dynasty before they had ever held a single practice together.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now, they are three years in and have made the NBA Finals every year they have been together and yet... This latest series against the Indiana Pacers has proven that they are a flawed team. Supremely talented, yes, but far from unbeatable and in fact it will only get harder next year. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Although it was only a five game series, Miami had its struggles against a Chicago team that was playing with their 3rd string point guard, a hobbled Joakhim Noah, and no Deng. Oh and next year, they will be getting their former MVP back...~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One could easily argue Indiana would be playing in the Finals THIS YEAR had Paul George not overplayed Lebron with less than 3 seconds to go in game one to give up an open layup. That team is young, talented, and only going to improve. Their confidence is growing with every single matchup against the Heat. Plus Danny Granger will be back next year. Oh and Hibbert and West are not going to be getting shorter over the offseason..~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Heat are a flawed team and have now been exposed. Chris Bosh was ineffective and Dwayne Wade is clearly in decline. Ray Allen may be done as he was even missing OPEN three point attempts in the series. Shane Battier can't play forever... The Heat need to shake things up regardless of whether or not they are crowned champions within the next two weeks and trading Chris Bosh may be the only way to do it with their cap situation as it is.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The question then becomes, do the Suns want Chris Bosh? If they do, would they have the assets necessary to swing a trade? If the Heat are serious about getting bigger, they may have interest in Anthony Bennet who can space the floor, won't rebound worse than Bosh's average against the Pacers, and would be on a rookie contract. If they value Bennet, a trade could be swung.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Let's assume the Heat are high on Bennett. He will most definitely be available at #5 when the Suns pick. A package surrounding Bennett and Gortat would have to be appealing. Throw in some shooters as filler. Maybe Dudz, or Wes Johnson and perhaps the Lakers 2015 future pick and Miami would have a difficult time finding a better package. They get younger, bigger, shooters, cap flexibility, AND a pick!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bosh was a stud with the Raptors. A legit 20/10 guy. IF Bosh gets back to being that guy the Suns may have just landed their #1 option. I'd say THAT is a phone call worth making.
