Suns Get: Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers
Heat Get: Steve Nash, Channing Frye, future draft pick
This trade is more probable than you might think.
Bosh is the most expendable of the Big Three. Behind him is Udonis Haslem, who is pretty much a less athletic, more defensive and better rebounding version of Bosh.
The Heat's main weakness is at point guard. Nash can slip right into the facilitator role and create easy opportunities for Wade and James. Channing Frye can stretch the floor with his long-range shooting and provide some rebounding and defense.
The Suns get an All-Star caliber player in Bosh. He and Gortat will make one of the most efficient front courts in the league. Those two will be the future in Phoenix, both only 27 years old.
Mario Chalmers is a cheap option at point guard. He is a good defender and a decent shooter—a bargain at $2.5 million.
No one would blame Nash for joining the most disliked team in the NBA that is the Heat. Nash deserves a ring, and this trade will give him just that.
