Chris Bosh is open to joining the Houston Rockets, though prefers to stay in Miami if possible. That is all according to Adrian Wojnarowski (Yahoo Sports) who was clarifying a mistweet by FoxSports1. They have since deleted the tweet but our Mike Kerns did manually retweet it.

Wojnarowski hopped on Twitter a bit later in the night to clarify his comments.
Quote attributed to me on @Foxsports1 feed bit of context: Bosh’s preference remains with LeBron in Miami, but he’s open to Houston offer.

The report is what we expected to hear from Bosh. Though many believe he would have a bigger role in Houston and could make more money here, he still prefers to be in Miami, but that’s only if LeBron James is his teammate.
Bosh is said to love the Miami lifestyle and his family enjoys it as well. Picking up to Houston, though being a better financial move, doesn’t seem to be his number one priority. However, if James leaves it’s all but certain he would also jump ship.
Many expected Carmelo Anthony to have an answer already but he’s said to still be deciding on the future. He’s expected to be the first free agent to announce his decision, as Bosh is reportedly waiting to hear from James and where he decides to play before making his own decision.
It’s been one full week and no major free agent has made a decision. This week, however, should start getting busy any minute now.
Stick with House of Houston for all the latest on the Rockets’ offseason.
