The first part of the divine trio is in place.

According to ESPN sources that had transcripts of the meeting between Chris Bosh and the Heat,  Bosh is a lock to end up in Miami.

The Toronto Raptor will join Wade for the maximum salary allowed under the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Bosh and Wade, along with Pat Riley, are said to still be courting LeBron James. James has said he will not announce his decision until 9 p.m. Thursday night in a televised special for ESPN.

It is not known how much of a salary cut the players would be willing to take in an attempt to bring James in, seeing as the Heat does not have enough money to give maximum contracts to all three players.

Nothing will become official until contracts can be signed on July 8th.

It is unknown if the Heat will sign Bosh for $96 million over five years or get a sign and trade with the Raptors for Bosh to get $125 million over six years.

The Raptors have expressed little interest in a sign-and-trade with the Heat as they have no interest in their current roster.

The Raptors are also hurt by the lack of communication with Bosh which makes it unlikely that they'll help him land a maximum deal with a sign-and-trade.

James has not made a decision and has made it clear that he has not made any agreements with his Team USA teammates.

Many believe James may actually remain in Cleveland, although the Knicks have not given up on James after signing Amar'e Stoudemire.
