And just like that, Miami Heat free agency has gone plaid.
ESPN's Chris Broussard is reporting that the Houston Rockets have offered Chris Bosh a max deal for 4 years, $96 million. In addition to that, Broussard says Bosh is considering the offer after supposedly having had a conversation with LeBron over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Yahoo! Sports reports that Bosh had direct conversations with the Rockets Monday morning, and that he prefers to stay in Miami if LeBron stays too. But, no one knows what LeBron is going to do until he meets with Pat Riley.
Naturally, Heat Twitter is having a meltdown.
