    Dwyane Wade(notes) and Chris Bosh(notes) have decided to sign with the Miami Heat while continuing to recruit LeBron James(notes) to help them form an All-Star triumvirate that threatens to shift the NBA’s balance of power, two sources with knowledge of the plans told Yahoo! Sports.

    “They think they’ve got a real chance to pull this off with LeBron,” a league source said.

    The three players shared a call after midnight on Wednesday, when Wade and Bosh told James they were committing to the Heat, a source said. James didn’t commit with them, but kept his own plans private for a television announcement on Thursday night. Wade and Bosh plan to formally announce their decision on Wednesday afternoon.

    Still, Wade and Bosh decided they needed to make a commitment to give them the best possible chance of luring more talent – including James – with the additional salary-cap space in Miami.

    Other teams bidding for James were unclear on Thursday morning of his plans, although Cleveland was still believed to lead Chicago, New Jersey and possibly the New York Knicks.

    As a possible contingency plan if they don’t get James, the Heat are planning to pursue the Portland Trail Blazers’ Andre Miller(notes) in a trade to play point guard for the team, a source said. The Heat could absorb Miller’s salary into their cap space. The Heat have had trade conversations since before the draft about sending point guard Mario Chalmers(notes) and a first-round pick to Portland for shooting guard Rudy Fernandez(notes), according to a source. It’s possible the talks have now expanded with Heat forward Michael Beasley(notes) and Miller.

    ESPN first reported Wade and Bosh’s plans.

    I guess the 7 page thread at the top of the forum was not easy to see. You know, it takes effort.
