With many old names returning to the NBA fold, why not Chris Bosh?

Of course, this is wishful thinking and the probability of seeing the 11-time All-Star back in action is remote. But then again, that won’t stop Bosh from having some fun for now – especially after an old teammate got the chance to reunite with the Miami Heat.

Bosh poked some light fun with Chalmers on Twitter, playfully telling the veteran guard to convince the Miami Heat to re-sign him as well. He added that they could bring back their old pick and roll, a familiar play that they ran when both were still playing alongside each other for the Heat.

Bosh says he is in shape but most know that seeing him play again would be risky. The two-time NBA champion was forced to call it quits due to blood clotting issues. He was waived by the Heat in 2017 although there were several attempts by the 6-foot-11 cager to return to NBA action.

As for Chalmers, it is a short-term lease for him. There is no assurance he will be staying with the Heat for long and that he is only there as a replacement player.

Chalmers was signed to a 10-day deal with Miami not being spared from missing players due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols, The Athletic reported. It remains to be seen if the 35-year-old will get a second 10-day deal at the least.

The 6-foot-3 guard has not played in the NBA since the 2017-18 season. He spent eight seasons in Miami and played six alongside Bosh. The two helped the Heat win back-to-back NBA titles in 2012 and 2013.

Chalmers becomes the latest old face to make a return to the league. Other names before him include Joe Johnson, Lance Stephenson and Isaiah Thomas.
