Chris Bosh said in an interview on Thursday that he's revitalized as a player with LeBron James now in Cleveland and that he was "close" to leaving the Heat.
"I know we don't have the best player in the world; that's an obvious thing," Bosh said. "But teamwise, if we come together we can do a bunch of special things. We're still going to be competitive." He is going to be the focal point of the offense, which was the reason why he was brought to Miami in the first place. Bosh put up an impressive 24.0 points per game in his last year with the Raptors in 2009-10, but his style of play has changed a little, taking shots further away from the basket. How high he can climb will come down to his efficiency and whether or not he can gobble up some of the rebounds that James will leave on the table. Aug 1 - 11:23 AM

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Heat sign F/C Chris Bosh.

He's been out of the country for most of the month, which explains why he hasn't signed his contract. Bosh's deal is reportedly $118 million over five years and he'll enter the season with more offensive responsibility. He already had second-round fantasy value last season due to a career high in effective field goal percentage, so the extra shots aren't going to boost his fantasy value too much.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh believes that even without LeBron James, Miami can still compete for a championship.

"I think right now we have the correct infrastructure to compete for a championship," Bosh said. "We have to get much better at certain positions, and there’s a bunch of things that have to continue to happen. But you know a team like the Spurs, they had a lot of guys that people underestimate, but as a team, they were outstanding." Miami's new Big Three of Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, and Chris Bosh isn't quite as intimidating as the one that included LeBron James, but they will still be able to compete at a high level. Chris Bosh will now be a primary scorer for Miami, and he will look to reestablish himself as an elite talent in the league after being a third-wheel the past four years.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh is reportedly finalizing an agreement to return to Miami on a five-year deal worth $118 million.

Wow, looks like Bosh is going to remain loyal to Pat Riley. If Bosh had elected to sign with Houston he would have been leaving $32 million on the table, so perhaps there was a bit of financial incentive at play here. Miami has a lot of cap space, and they can bring in another high-profile free agent to play alongside Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Bosh will now take on a much larger burden with shouldering the offensive workload in Miami, and he could be in for a fantastic fantasy season.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh will reportedly soon speak with coach Kevin McHale, and it appears he's leaning towards signing with Houston.

Money is not going to be an issue here as Bosh has a max offer from both the Rockets and Heat, so his decision would presumably come down to what situation would put him in the best possible scenario for winning. With LeBron James returning his talents to Cleveland, it wouldn't be shocking to see Bosh return to his home state of Texas.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

With a Jeremy Lin-to-Lakers trade now "imminent," according to Marc Stein, the belief is that Chris Bosh has chosen to join the Rockets over the Heat.

Both teams have reportedly offered Bosh a max-contract, while the Rockets have said all along that they weren't going to move Lin until they had a commitment from Bosh. While this is certainly not official, it does seem to indicate that Bosh will leave Miami for Houston. The Rockets should also match Chandler Parsons' offer sheet and if it happens, they should be one of the best teams in the league. And with only Dwyane Wade and some role players left in Miami, it could be a very, very long season for the Heat.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Ira Winderman said on New York radio WFAN that Chris Bosh has max offers from both the Rockets and the Heat, according to Tommy Beer.

Bosh loves Miami and probably doesn't really want to leave, but he's also from Texas, and the Rockets are heading in the opposite direction of the Heat. Bosh has yet to make a decision, but if he does go to Houston they're going to be one of the top teams in the league, while the Heat could be one of the worst.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Updating a previous report, the Rockets expect that Chris Bosh will "soon" agree to sign in Houston now that LeBron James has opted to leave the Heat.

The Rockets have offered Bosh a four-year, $88 million deal and they're willing to pay a steep luxury tax to assemble a championship-caliber core that also includes James Harden, Dwight Howard and Chandler Parsons. Before Bosh could sign anything, the Rockets will need to complete trades sending away Omer Asik (to the Pelicans) and Jeremy Lin (in talks with the 76ers). At the moment it doesn't seem as though Bosh is considering any other teams.

The Rockets are expected to offer Chris Bosh a four-year, $96 million contract now that LeBron James has decided to leave the Heat.

The Rockets are expected to offer Chris Bosh a four-year, $96 million contract now that LeBron James has decided to leave the Heat. Houston must first clear cap space by trading away Jeremy Lin, but it's only a matter of time before they present Bosh with a hefty offer. Bosh was born in Texas and he'd be joining a playoff team in Houston, as opposed to the reclamation project in Miami, so it's very plausible that we'll see him starting alongside Dwight Howard next season.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

David Aldridge is reporting that Chris Bosh doesn't have a contingency plan with the Rockets in case LeBron James leaves the Heat, which is contrary to most other reports out there.

Aldridge says he's been told "strongly' that Bosh has no deal with the Rockets, which would mean the signing of LeBron by any team would still result in mystery theater across the rest of the league. There's still a decent chance Bosh could end up in Houston, with LeBron going 'home' to Cleveland, but we'll obviously have to wait and see what becomes of 'The Decision, Part II.'

Chris Bosh has decided to sign with the Rockets if LeBron James leaves the Heat, according to

This isn't really a breaking report and the word on the street has been Bosh isn't going to play in Miami without LeBron. It's hard to believe the Heat will suddenly be left out of the free-agency game of musical chairs after things looked so great when Dwyane Wade opted out of the last two years of his deal worth $41.5 million. Chandler Parsons agreed to an offer sheet, which means the Rockets will have three days from Thursday morning to match. Obviously, they would love a decision from Bosh before those three days are up.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

There has been "communication flowing" between Chris Bosh's camp and the Rockets on Wednesday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The report adds Houston would be a landing spot for Bosh should LeBron James not return to Miami. Bosh has made it clear he'd like to play with LeBron, but that scenario has become more unlikely. He may be a bigger part of the offense in Houston compared to Miami, but he isn't likely to see a big boost in fantasy value just because of his tremendous efficiency while with the Heat. Specifically, he's set a career high in true shooting percentage in each of his last two seasons, posting a sterling 59.7 percent last year.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The Rockets have reportedly offered unrestricted free agent Chris Bosh a max deal of 4-years, $96 million.

After Bosh's weekend conversation with LeBron James, and the Heat's offer for substantially less, Bosh is reportedly "strongly considering" a move back to his home state of Texas. Bosh's career took a bit of a hit when he became the third wheel of the Big Three, but before he came to Miami he averaged 24.0 points, and 10.8 rebounds during his last season with the Raptors. Bosh is still an elite talent in the league, and he may decide he deserves to be paid like one. That being said, if James returns to Miami, Bosh will follow.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Unrestricted free agent Chris Bosh is having conversations with the Rockets on Monday.

Bosh definitely wants to play with LeBron James, but Houston is in the running. He is from Texas and would be a great floor spacer next to Dwight Howard. The Rockets are also likely to give him a $20 million offer, which is not something the Heat would be quite as willing to do.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

The Rockets are "heavily engaged" in talks to acquire Chris Bosh, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Earlier on Sunday, Bosh's agent "scoffed" at reports that he was seeking a max deal outside of Miami. The Rockets' interest may signal that they're pessimistic about landing Carmelo Anthony, or it may simply be due diligence -- Bosh has been playing in LeBron's shadow for years, but he's still a top-tier scorer who turned 30 years old in March. If nothing else, the NBA free agency period has reached a new level of chaos and activity.
