NBA Rumors: Is Chris Bosh Houston’s Plan B?


 

If at some point this offseason the Houston Rockets find themselves down in the count, 0-2, they have a plan. It may not be the best of plans, but they have one.

If the Rockets miss out on LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, something that’s looking more and more like a realistic scenario, Houston is prepared to take on the tall task of trying to pry Chris Bosh out of Miami.

The Houston Rockets, if they fail to land free agent Carmelo Anthony, plan to shift their attention to trying to swipe Chris Bosh away from the Miami Heat, according to sources close to the process.

Sources told ESPN.com on Thursday night that the Rockets — while still holding out hope that Anthony will choose them after hosting him Wednesday in Houston — have already let Bosh know how interested they are in bringing the Dallas native back to Texas.

Yahoo’s Adrain Wojnarowski reported Thursday that LeBron is “ready to explore the market” if Pat Riley can’t improve the roster soon.

Ironically, players aren’t going to agree to sign (at a discount) with the Heat unless they no without a doubt that LeBron James is going to be on the team next season. Such a weird situation this is. Ultimately, it may be the thing that breaks the Big Three up.

    There is no breakdown. There is media speculation….
    The Big-3 know their run is over. The question becomes which one leaves Miami.
    Wade SHOULD be the pick, but I’d bet it’s Bosh.

    Bosh in Houston perpetuates the dysfunctional system they have and doesn’t make them much better.
