Future free agent Chris Bosh is considering the New York Knicks as his next team no matter what LeBron James decides.
Bosh, who was quoted in Friday’s edition of the New York Post, appears he would like the opportunity to play with James, but isn’t willing to wait around for the Cavaliers superstar to make a decision.
“Anytime you have the opportunity to play with certain guys, you have to take that into consideration. When it all goes down, [LeBron is] gonna be one of the all-time greats,” the Raptors forward said in a Thursday phone call to network SNY.
“At the same time, I can’t just sit around and wait. I have to be proactive with my choices and what’s gonna make me happy. I have to make sure I take my time and make the right decision.”
Bosh said the Knicks — who have salary-cap room to sign two top-level players — are “definitely a team I’m considering.”
“There are a lot of teams out there I’m considering including my home team, the Raptors,” Bosh told SNY. “It’s gonna be crazy and confusing and I’m looking forward to it.”
“You look at every situation closely and see what situation best fits you. Toronto will have certain advantages over other teams, and other teams will have certain advantages over Toronto. It’s just what works better for me."
Bosh is part of a free agent class that could include James, Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire and Joe Johnson.
