NBA Rumors

According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Chris Bosh reportedly told the Houston Rockets that he had no interest in leaving South Florida if LeBron James returns.

In plain english, he essentially declined the Rockets’ max contract offer. If LeBron James comes back. That’s the key to it all.

ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported earlier on Monday that the Rockets had ramped up their recruitment in Bosh and had offered a max deal, per his sources.

While it isn’t a given that LeBron is even going to re-sign in Miami, apparently Bosh believes that it’s a good enough of a possibility to decline the Rockets’ deal. Again, reportedly.  LeBron is set to meet with Pat Riley sometime this week, the meeting could come as early as today according to some reports.

There’s no indication as to what the meeting will entail, or if we’ll get a decision from LeBron shortly after. However, you’d think that we should know a little after said meeting takes place.

    And this should come as a surprise to no one. All of the hand wringing over what “sources” have said has ignored what Bosh has said multiple times on radio and television.

    There was no ambiguity when he said he didn’t want to leave Miami and would take a pay cut to stay if he needed to.
