Chris Bosh has reached agreement on a five-year, $118 million contract to re-sign with the Miami Heat, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
After LeBron James announced he was leaving the Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Bosh strongly considered a four-year, $88 million offer to sign with the Houston Rockets. He will get an additional guaranteed $30 million by re-signing with Miami.
The Heat are pushing to keep Dwyane Wade andUdonis Haslem on shorter deals, sources told Yahoo Sports. Bosh, Wade and Haslem all opted out of their contracts to give the Heat cap flexibility to improve their roster after James became a free agent.
Dwyane Wade, per reports, is also expected to re-sign with the Heat shortly.
Wade deal in Miami also imminent. No terms yet.

Maybe Chris Bosh was the one trying to force LeBron James out of Miami?
OK, maybe not. But Bosh just got paid and he’ll be able to be THE MAN now in South Beach, and possibly appreciated once again.
