For years we’ve heard about Chris Bosh potentially signing with the Dallas Mavericks, the suggestion being brought up given Bosh is a native of the area and the Mavericks have always seemingly been interested in the power forward. But it might be another Texas based team who has their sights set on the All-Star as according to USA Today, Bosh is among the players Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is keeping his eye on.
Bosh, who has an early termination clause in his contract has reportedly yet to decide if he plans to exercise such, though has been adamant about his desire to return to the Miami Heat in free agency. Of course, that plan could change if LeBron James, who also holds an early termination clause, decides to leave in free agency. If that is to happen, it’s expected the Rockets will likely make a push to sign Bosh along with previously mentioned targets like Carmelo Anthony.
“James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have the ability to opt out of their Heat contracts, and Bosh would certainly be on the Rockets’ short list of targets should James decide to head elsewhere,” says Sam Amick. “Should Anthony opt out of his New York Knicks deal, he could take a similar path to the one chosen by Howard last July – eschew the flagship franchise that is flailing for the fourth-largest city in the country and a talented roster that, once Howard was in tow, won 54 games before being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Portland Trail Blazers.”
Bosh likely isn’t to have any interest in the Rockets if James does decide he wants to return to South Beach, but if that isn’t the case, you’d have to think Houston would be among his top desired destinations.
