In an unlikely turn of events, the Houston Rockets have put a gigantic offer on the table for Chris Bosh, offering him $96 million over 4 years (updated now reduced to $88, but still a huge sum. Here he could finally have a superstar big man in Dwight Howard to reform a twin-towers type dominance in Houston. With LeBron James' agent reportedly pushing for a return to Cleveland, the Big Three may be separated, and Bosh would be free to head back to his home state of Texas. However, Houston would need to clear out cap space and would unload Jeremy Lin. The 76ers are reportedly interested in the pick the Rockets acquired from New Orleans in the Omer Asik trade, so it is possible that Lin may be packaged with that pick and sent to Philly. Philly may return a cheap guard back to provide depth for Houston.
