It is official folks. The drama of the NBA Free Agency can begin.

Moments ago on, the first domino affect fell.

According to multiple sources close to the Toronto Raptors front office,  All Star Chris Bosh will head to the Chicago Bulls in a sign and trade deal.

The Raptors are still in the works of getting a deal done, but it is believed the sign and trade will get done by Thursday.

There is speculation that Chicago would send Luol Deng and a future first round pick to the club.

It sure does make sense. The Bulls get Bosh, and then the recruiting can begin for either Lebron or Wade to come to Chicago.

Stephen A. Smith also believes it isn't out of the question that this trade is indeed possible.
