Chris Bosh has apparently compiled a list of five teams he’d be willing to join, according to Chad Ford of ESPN.com:

The list of five teams — Toronto plus the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and New York Knicks, sources said — was given to Toronto management in case the Raptors want to construct a sign-and-trade deal (assuming Bosh doesn’t re-sign with Toronto).

Bosh likes that option, sources told Ford, because he’d get one more year on his contract and could make more money.

Bosh’s agent said yesterday that the list of teams does not exist, but we wouldn’t be surprised if those are the five teams Bosh is considering.

An unnamed source also said that if LeBron James signs in New York or Chicago, Bosh will likely land there as well. The Lakers mention would likely entail a sign-and-trade for Andrew Bynum.
