    Toronto Raptors star Chris Bosh met for more than two hours each Friday with the Chicago Bulls and the New York Knicks, the latest suitors hoping to land the coveted free agent forward.

    Bosh showed up at the same hotel where Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade met with the Knicks earlier Friday. In a tweet, Bosh called the Knicks' presentation during a meeting that lasted 2 hours and 40 minutes "another impressive one."

    He told reporters he felt "like a kid at Christmas."

    "You've got to enjoy this," he said. Asked if there were any offers, he said "No, not yet. Everything is still pending."

    Knicks officials were not immediately available.

    Late Friday, Bosh spent more than two hours meeting with Bulls executives at the United Center. Chicago also met with Wade --  twice -- and was scheduled to meet with LeBron James on Saturday.

    Henry Thomas, the agent for both Bosh and Wade, said no deals had been reached but that he was encouraged by presentations to his clients.

    After seven seasons in Toronto, Bosh has been one of the busiest players in the free agency bonanza. He met with Rockets in his hometown of Dallas early Thursday, then flew to Chicago for sessions with the Heat and New Jersey Nets.

    "It was good. It was good, real good," Bosh said on Twitter of his meeting with the Nets Thursday.

    "These guys really know how to sell a franchise," he wrote.

    He also tweeted that Heat president Pat Riley "is very passionate about winning."The Bulls would like to make the same impression.

    Chicago would like to nab the big man to play alongside Joakim Noah in the paint, and hopefully provide a big man for Derrick Rose to dish to.

    Oh, yeah, they'd also like to pair Bosh with LeBron James and turn their team into the beast in the East.

    Like Bosh said when he arrived in Chicago, "Stay Tuned."

    Late Friday, Bosh showed up at the office of his agent, Henry Thomas, who said no deals had been reached but that he was encouraged by presentations to his client.
