Done deals: LeBron, Bosh and Wade sign six-year contracts


Posted Jul 9 2010 11:53PM

MIAMI (AP) -- Done deal. LeBron James and Chris Bosh are members of the Miami Heat.

The Heat completed sign-and-trade deals with Cleveland and Toronto on Friday night for their two newest superstars. The Heat sent two future first-round and two second-round picks to the Cavaliers for James, while packaging two first-round picks to the Raptors for Bosh.

James, Bosh and Dwyane Wade all signed six-year contracts Friday night, each leaving millions of dollars on the table in order to provide the Heat flexibility to build a championship roster. They could have made $16.6 million apiece this season, but took less money - none would say how much less - to get the deals done.
