The Miami Heat are active on draft night as not only have they pulled off a trade that lands them UConn Huskies star Shabazz Napier, they’re in talks to acquire Kyle Lowry from the Toronto Raptors as well.
But the fun doesn’t end there, as we may or may not have movement on the future of Chris Bosh in Miami. In his same report in which he states that the Heat are in talks to sign-and-trade for Kyle Lowry, Ric Bucher notes that Chris Bosh is likely to opt out and then sign with his former team up in Toronto.

Of course, all of this is rumor at this point but it’s starting to look like the Heat are moving into a position to really make a hard push to get LeBron James back. Losing Bosh is part of that as Miami won’t have the money to take back all of the Bi 3 and none of them seem all that interested in taking paycuts.
Plus, Bosh would return to a rather decent Raptors team as a hero and he could help them challenge the Heat in the Eastern Conference in 2014-15.
