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.
