View Full Version : Chris Bosh: Rockets will pursue Chris Bosh via JJ?

The Rockets are preparing to woo Chris Bosh in free agency, and as of Sunday "they still believe they have a shot."
They reportedly may even try to sign Joe Johnson, though that would require a clever sign-and-trade and could cost them SG Kevin Martin. But as pointed out by beat writer Jonathan Feigen, "the idea of hitting a long shot [Bosh] by hitting another one first [Johnson] seems an exercise in wishful thinking."

Ok after they trade for JJ, how the heck can they sign Bosh short of trading Yao Ming?

Every team in the NBA actually thinks they can get atleast 2 of the top 4-5 free agents like their isn't other teams out there.:facepalm:

kevin martin is a more efficient scorer, JJ is not an upgrade, and bosh isnt worth the max, metrics dont add up, horseshit rumors be gone.

Im waiting for direct quotes from the top free agents on who they will sign with(if any of them actually do say anything) and names on dotted lines.

The Rockets won't get Chris Bosh. I believe Bosh will link himself with either Dwayne Wade in Miami or Lebron James in Chicago/New York.

yea james,wade, and bosh are the only 3 in the FA class that deserve the max. if jj gets the max i will laugh at the team who gives it to them and facepalm the bulls if they do it as well

Rockets Know Knicks Plan B is JJ and amare. Since rumor has it LBJ might go to Chicago Rockets can snatch Chris bosh and JJ and that on leaves Stat and he might go to Miami making the Knicks a lottery team and switching picks with them this year and having another lottery pick in 2012 Morey is a freaking Evil Genius

Yao ming isn't a free agent yet.. he has a player option which most likely he'll exercise(17.8 mill).

The rockets are going to do sign and trades for both players while keeping yao Ming. We have the pieces to do that.

As a rockets fan, I hope this doesn't happen because 1. I don't like jj and I don't think he's worth the Max and 2. Doing this will gut our team and I really like the team we have right now. I honestly think we're just one star away from being a contender. If we can get bosh by himself...great. but if we have to get jj in order to get bosh...no thanks

Most creative FA story I've heard today? Rockets apparently planning to send three-truck caravan ferrying fans to their free-agent meetings

Oh wow Bosh is leaving...Thats a shock!!!


If Houston ends up with Bosh and Johnson to go along wit Ming watch out.

why trade k-mart? Even though he's just scores, it's not much of an upgrade with JJ instead. Just get Bosh and you'll have a dominate front court of yao and bosh. Well only if yao can stay healthy

thanks for clearing that up. I knew that rockets cant sign a MAX FA without denouncing the rights to Yao. The article made it seems like they can sign one Max FA outright.

wonder who the raps will get back if there is a S&T

No, you're an idiot. They're gonna get Wade, LeBron and Amare. Bosh is only an option if they can't get Amare

i think trading kmart for johnson might scare bosh away....did you see his pittiful performance in the playoffs? thats the most important part of the seaon and he ch-ch-ch-choked

Hawks would prob do a Kmart for JJ swap and might be better for it. I mean, we are planning to stop the "Joe Iso" ran offense and do more of a team game, so why not have a spot up deadly shooter instead of someone who needs to dribble for 20 secs to find his shot? We have Crawford coming off the bench for that.

YES go to the rockets Chris, that way, we can get very good assets in return (scola, battier)

Yeah, this would prob work out more for the Raps and Hawks in the long run. Rockets could be good, but they still have to get past the Lakers, which I don't see happening.

stupid rumers but if it were to happen imagine the team

Brooks
Johnson
Ariza
Bosh
Yao

Rockets just want to ****-block the Knicks so that we get a lottery pick next year. Hopefully NY strikes out!

It's like playing the lottery. Except each team is investing their entire organization on a single ticket.
