Rockets close in on Chris Bosh signing, reports say

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

According to a number of reports, the Rockets are closing in on a deal to sign Chris Bosh after LeBron James agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Thank you, LeBron James. After eleven days of waiting, the superstar finally announced his decision, paving the way for Chris Bosh to come to the Houston Rockets. According to a number of reports, the Rockets are closing in on a four year contract to bring Bosh to Houston, four years after they unsuccessfully attempted to woo him away from the Toronto Raptors.

Here's what his Woj-ness had to say:

It was touch and go there for a bit, wasn't it? With Carmelo then LeBron rejecting the Rockets' advances, Parsons signing an offer sheet so quickly, and no word back from Bosh for days as he waiting on LeBron, it looked like the Rockets may have made a big mistake going all out this off-season. Now, it looks like a stroke of genius.

Bosh joins Dwight Howard, James Harden, Patrick Beverley, and likely Chandler Parsons in a starting lineup that could challenge for the conference's best. His floor-spacing fits very well on this team, and he will form an excellent defensive front court with Dwight Howard. No longer will the Rockets have to choose between a balanced offense by playing Terrence Jones or a balanced defense by playing Asik, getting the best of both worlds in Bosh.

He might not be a superstar anymore, but he is still one of the league's best two-way big men and propels the Rockets towards championship contention. We'll have more as the news continues to develop, but suffice it to say that today is a very good day for Rockets fans.
