Pat Riley reportedly telling free agent targets that Chris Bosh likely to return next year
Chris Bosh is apparently improving, because Pat Riley is featuring him in his pitch to free agents.
According to ESPN’s Michael Wallace, Riley has told free agent targets of the team’s optimism of having him back on the court next season, while also selling the stability of coach Erik Spoelstra and the organization.
Sources said that the hope of both Bosh and the Heat is that he will be good to go in time for training camp, though he remains on blood thinners.
Bosh’s condition is such an unknown because of the aforementioned blood thinners. It’s an open question whether he would ever be allowed to play while on them, with some in the organization fearing it will never happen. That the Heat are so optimistic about this that they’re willing to use Bosh as part of their sales pitch would seem to bode well for his playing future.
