Miami Heat retiring Chris Bosh's number is absolute right thing to do

3:18PlayLatest news on Miami Heat waiving Chris Bosh

After six seasons, which included four Eastern Conference championships and two National Basketball Association championships, 11-time All-Star Chris Bosh has been waived by the Miami Heat.

The Miami HEAT announced today that they have waived forward Chris Bosh. Waiving the 6-11 center frees up about $25 million in salary cap space. He ranks in the top five in Heat franchise history for points, defensive rebounds, free throw percentage and free throws made.

He also was an All-Star in each of his six years with Miami.

The 32-year-old has expressed interest in continuing his National Basketball Association career but it's unknown if he could be medically cleared.

Bosh was drafted fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors in 2003 but left for Miami in 2010 to team up with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, forming the team's fabled "Big Three" that set in motion a dominant four-season run in which the team went 224-88.

The 33-year-old Bosh wants to continue playing but has yet to be cleared to do so.

He last played on February 9, 2016. Because of the sensitivity of Bosh's medical situation, the Heat never could provide specifics - under league rule, any matter that would rise to the level of being possibly life-threatening cannot be discussed openly by teams without the player's consent.

"The number "1" will never be worn by another player and we can't wait to someday hang his jersey in the rafters", Riley said in a statement released Wednesday. But we wish Chris, Adrienne and their family nothing but the best.

Bosh enjoyed six seasons with the Heat, winning two NBA Championships while reaching the NBA Finals four times.

The No. 4 overall pick of Toronto in 2003 out of Georgia Tech, Bosh averaged 19.1 points and 7.4 rebounds in 53 games for the Heat in 2015-16 before the blood clots cut his season short.
