He will join Isiah Thomas, Chris Webber and Baron Davis on that team.
Bosh has not played this season after failing his preseason physical with the Miami Heat. He and the team were in a heated dispute over his ability to play despite his blood clots. The Heat are hoping to have his contract removed as a salary cap hit against them because of his medical condition. If Bosh plays in 25 games in any remaining season during the term of his deal with Miami, the Heat would have to pay him his full contract amount. Thanks to the TNT deal, the Heat are in the clear for one year and will hope Bosh does not play 25 games in either of his two remaining seasons. Bosh is owed around $52 million for the next two seasons.
