Report: Bosh tells Houston ‘I want to be in Miami and play with LeBron’

Chris Bosh and LBJ

Update: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports says his quote was taken out of context. Bosh’s preference is to be in Miami, but he’s open to Houston.

While everyone awaits the future of Miami’s ‘Big 3’ of LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, teams have been courting the possibility of convincing one of the three, to leave Miami. Such is the case with the Houston Rockets and their pursuit of Chris Bosh who made a strong push to sign Bosh. While Houston pushed hard, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski on set with FOX Sports Live, they didn’t receive the answer they were looking for. Wojnarowski said that Bosh told Houston “I want to be in Miami and play with LeBron“. Meanwhile according to ESPN, LeBron could be meeting with Miami Heat President, Pat Riley as early as Tuesday in Las Vegas.

LeBron’s agent is reportedly making a hard push for a return to Cleveland, but with the Heat signing Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger on Monday, there could be signs of hope for the Big 3 to return to Miami. In an article from Chris Broussard on Monday night, it was reported that Bosh is “seriously considering” the Rockets’ offer of 4-years, $88 million. No reason to fault Bosh for wanting to play with a four-time league MVP, two-time NBA Champion, and two-time NBA Finals MVP, even if it has meant that Bosh has been seen as the third option in their trio. The only way that Bosh would be seemingly willing to make that deal is if LeBron does indeed part ways with Miami. While the money is nice, and the return to his home state of Texas could sound intriguing to Bosh, he’s showing his loyalty to LeBron so far.
