How sweet would it be for the Mavericks to sign local product Chris Bosh this summer?

Bradford Doolittle and Amin Elhassan consider it the ideal scenario in their ESPN Insider “Roster Reload” piece.

I respectfully disagree. More importantly, so do the Mavs and Bosh.

Bosh, who led Dallas Lincoln High to an undefeated season and mythical national title as a senior, has made it clear over the years that the thought of playing in his hometown doesn’t appeal to him. The ridiculous numbers of ticket requests and demands for his time would outweigh home cooking, in his mind.

The Mavs’ immediate goal is to give Dirk Nowitzki the best possible chance to contend for another championship during his golden years, and they don’t consider Bosh to be a good fit next to the big German.

Bosh and Nowitzki, two of the best jump-shooting big men in the game, like to operate from a lot of the same areas offensively. An athletic big man who does a lot of damage in the lane and on the offensive glass – such as last summer’s target, Dwight Howard – would be a much better complement to Nowitzki.
