The Miami Heat are currently expected to wait until after March 1st to waive Chris Bosh to ensure he is not eligible to play in the playoffs for any team that signs him.

Bosh's salary would then vanish from Miami's cap sheet and create massive cap space for Pat Riley in the 2017 offseason.

The Heat could use their cap space to sign free agents and then have Bosh's salary go back atop their cap number if he plays at least 25 games elsewhere in 17-18. If that scenario happens, Miami would be facing a serious luxury tax burden.

Miami has yet to find a solution that allows them to waive Bosh with financial certainty.
