General manager Bryan Colangelo said Monday that "it's likely" free agent forward Chris Bosh will leave the Raptors.
Colangelo said Toronto still hopes to keep Bosh, but "it's becoming more and more clear that that's not going to happen."
Bosh has long been considered the likeliest to leave in a free agent class that includes Cleveland's LeBron James and Miami's Dwyane Wade.
Meanwhile, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith reported that James will join Wade on the Heat. That comes after the New York Times reported that James and Bosh ending up in tandem with the Bulls was all but a "done deal."
