The Houston Rockets have been pursuing Chris Bosh since the free agency period began. The first domino has fallen as LeBron James returns to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Chris Bosh is expected to make his decision sooner rather than later. The nine time All-Star will be a perfect fit for the Houston Rockets.
His defensive ability and shooters touch will make him the perfect piece to fit alongside Dwight Howard.
LeBron’s decision will most likely allow the Rockets to sign Chris Bosh and retain Chandler Parsons. The Rockets will first need to complete the trade of Omer Asik to the New Orleans Pelicans and then cross the “T’s” and dot the “I’s” on the trade of Jeremy Lin.
Daryl Morey will have a lot of work to do before Sunday but as always the belief is there that he will get it done.
If Chris Bosh signs with the Rockets, the Rockets will become one of the Elite teams in the Western Conference. If the Rockets are able to get out of the Western Conference, the possibility is there for them to face the new and improved Cavs.
It looks like the free agency period has finally kicked off and we look forward to hearing Chris Bosh’s decision.
