Houston Rockets offer Chris Bosh 4-year, $96M max contract

It’s a moment we’ve all been waiting for as Houston has liftoff in the Chris Bosh sweepstakes. After a weekend of all bark and no bite, the Rockets have reportedly offered Chris Bosh a 4-year, $96 million max contract offer.

This might not be just liftoff for Houston but the Drain-O we’ve been needing to get out the free agent clog that has been backing up the pipes in the NBA. Everyone is waiting on Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James to make a decision but the player who may set things in motion is Bosh and he has a formal offer on the table to make it happen.

Bosh has been rumored to be flirting with the Rockets for some time now as they’ve had interest in the All-Star forward dating back to June. The latest surge in interest when it comes to Bosh has been led by the Rockets, who even have a trade ready to ship off Jeremy Lin if they need max contract space.

That trade might be happening soon, as no matter how badly Bosh wants to remain in Miami, forming a new Big 3 in Houston and getting paid $96 million for it is a hard thing to pass up.

    Gotta be crazy to offer Bosh this kind of money. No way he deserves this kind of cash!

  • Len Biz

    I’m not a Rockets fan, but if I was, I’d be hoping Bosh doesn’t take the offer! Bosh is WAAAAAAAAY overrated…and he isn’t worth more than the league average salary, at best!

  • sugardaddy5

    Houston Fools

  • Darrell

    I hope that he does take the offer. Even though it is a lot for his type of game, shiiiiiiit, I would run with it. He has a ring already and he is a GOOD player. Let him go someplace else so that he can build from there instead of being in another player’s shadow.

    • Silentbutsmart

      like 2 rings :) and y’all sleeping on Bosh – sure he have one bad Playoffs but keep in mind the heat been to the play 4 straight times!!! 2-4 (lost against Dallas and Spurs – beat OKC and Spurs)

  • Chris

    With Bosh, the Rockets are going to be the best regular season team in the NBA! As for postseason…

  • Desire Itsalreadydone Nwosu

    : ) This is H-Town! : )

  • Mark Mercer

    Why would anyone pay him even half that? Have they not watched the last 4 years? The most overrated player in the NBA. He is the complete opposite of clutch and one of the main reasons Miami didn’t win more titles.

  • Andy Harris

    Way overpaying! That’s crazy money!

  • Ramon Penton Jr.

    Bosh is good but not $96 million good, LO !!!

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    Please take the offer Bosh, please take it…. so we can count the Rockets out (how long before the media names Bosh and Howard the twin towers).. Bosh is not much better than Parsons and no one would pay him the max
    i want to see the Stupidity of Spoelstra coach without Lebron and i want to see the James return to Cleveland or join another team…
    i have never seen someone made so much money riding coat tails…
    what did Bosh do in Toronto when everyone was praising Bosh for being a 24 and 10 player…. forgetting those were PLAYOFF LESS teams ! and in Miami Bosh disappears, how quickly people forget Bosh did not score… yes he had ZERO points in game 7 last years and disappeared in this year finals !

  • Binoy Thomas

    I hope Bosh signs with Houston because no other team in the NBA are fools like the Houston management as they have a history of signing the wrong people at the wrong time, like Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, good to see the HEAT is breaking up, big three has been a failure with false promises of 7 championships.–jrbs
