Calling all Mavs fan: I’m looking for someone who would be interested in helping me run this blog. Please message me if this is something you’d like to do and I will give you more details.
Well this news complicates things….
Today is the day! Will they match Parsons’ contract???
Serious question. How many of you will continue to follow this blog if I keep it going? In addition my plan for all you Rockets fans is to continue to put the team updates on my Chandler Parsons blog chandler-parsons if he stays on the team because I am still going to follow the Rockets. This blog would be solely focused on Jeremy Lin.
This just in: I hate free agency
Q:do you know if chandler and robyn are still together?? and i don't mean just bc he is going to dallas but because i haven't seen anything on robyns instagram indicating theyre still togther..
Chandler and Robyn broke up and Robyn’s sister is dating Johnny Manziel
With just a couple of days remaining until the free agent moratorium is over, the Houston Rockets reportedly are trying to lock down the third member of their big three. And in this case, that third member is Chris Bosh.
ESPN is reporting that the Rockets have made an offer to Bosh at the maximum salary over four seasons. In Bosh’s case, based on last season’s salary, that would result in a four-year, $85.7 million deal.
Additionally, Yahoo! reports that Bosh has now had direct conversations with Houston about the possibility of joining the team. A lot of players’ decisions still seem hinged to what LeBron James will ultimately decide to do, but the Rockets appear to be moving on from Carmelo Anthony in hopes that if Bosh departs Miami, he’ll be doing so to join the Rockets.
Houston would have some maneuvering to do with the current roster, including trading Jeremy Lin if they were going to make that offer without the benefit of a sign-and-trade deal, but would also still remain in position to match any offer for restricted free agent Chandler Parsons.
Parsons could sign an offer sheet with another team as soon as the moratorium ends and the Rockets would have three days to match the offer to keep Parsons. The team team has been steadfast in their intentions to match any offer Parsons might receive.
Bosh, 30, like his Heat teammates, James and Dwyane Wade, opted out of the final two years of their respective contracts just after losing in the NBA finals. In Bosh’s case, that deal would have paid him roughly $41 million over the next two seasons. The belief was that while James would likely receive a maximum salary on whatever new contract was negotiated with the Heat, Bosh and Wade would take new deals that lower their annual salary but paid them more guaranteed money long-term.
The hope from Heat president Pat Riley was those concessions would allow the Heat some flexibility in free agency to try to improve the team that won the eastern conference all four years since the “big three’ joined forces.
ESPN reports that Bosh is said to be seriously considering the Rockets’ offer. James is set to meet with Riley and Heat officials early this week, to try provide some clarity on his own situation, which in turn should do the same for Bosh and other top free agents.
Bosh has been an all-star each of the last nine seasons, including five times with the Toronto Raptors, prior to joining the Heat. He finished in the top ten in scoring and rebounding per game in each of his final two seasons in Toronto, before signing with the Heat prior to the 2010-11 season.
