Report: Chris Bosh Hires New Agent


Chris Bosh’s future in basketball is unknown. There is not much he can do to control what happens moving forward due to the recurring blood-clot issue.

Miami, for the most part sounds like they are all but done with him. But Bosh has been adamant about returning to the game that he loves, and one way to do that is by having proper representation in place.

Bosh had fired his long time agent Henry Thomas of CAA back in September. Today it is reported that he is hiring Rob Pelinka of Landmark.

Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal:

Bosh’s new agent will have obstacles to hurdle immediately. First is finding a doctor whose views are the same as his clients. If he were able to do that, and a doctor clears Bosh, then it would be highly likely that he would continue his career with the Heat. There is no financial benefit for Miami to waive Bosh if he is healthy enough to play.

He is still owed $75,868,170 over the final three years of his contract, money that is guaranteed. If Bosh does not play by February 9th and the Heat waive him, his salary will be excluded from their cap while still paying him. He will also be excluded from their luxury tax calculations, if and only if, a league and players union approved doctor says he can no longer player.

Regardless of what happens, it will be a difficult situation moving forward for both Chris Bosh and the Heat. Many questions lie ahead and Bosh needed someone to help guide him down this unknown path.
