I'll give you Bosh for Davis, right now, straight up.
Let's be serious here. The only guys you're looking at are Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. The rest of the Heat's roster—because of salary limitations—are either young, unproven players, or older, over-the-hill players.
So let's start with LeBron.
There's no way I'd trade you the best player in the world for Anthony Davis. I believe LeBron has a two-or-three-year window to one or more championships after this season.
I'm not saying he can't win more after that window closes, but LeBron will turn 28 next season, and if we use history as our guide, those straight out of high school players (Garnett, Kobe, Jermaine O'Neal, Tracy McGrady, etc.) tend to start breaking down in their early 30s.
That means LeBron has about three more great years after this season. As good as I think Davis might be, LeBron James is the best player in the world! A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush, so I'm holding onto James.
Dwyane Wade, now that's another story.
Wade will turn 31 next season. He did play two seasons (65 games) at Marquette, which saved him about 100 games of wear and tear, and several cross-country flights. So let's say for the sake of argument that Wade is going to be an elite player until he is 33 years old.
Do you buy three more elite seasons of Wade, or do you trade those three seasons for the next 10 to 12 years of whatever Anthony Davis turns into?
The better question is, do you blow up the Heat?
Do you trade Wade, a player with a very similar skill set to LeBron, for a player like Davis, who could theoretically give the Heat the rebounding and interior defense they need? Will Davis be ready to win a championship sometime in LeBron's window of opportunity? Will it even matter, with the Thunder getting better and better each season?
Let me put an end to all the questions and just say no, I wouldn't trade Dwayne Wade.
I'd have to really, really think hard about it, because I think Davis might actually be a better fit with LeBron, but in the end, I just can't trade one of the top-five players in the world, not while he is in his prime.
