Rockets Targetting Bosh?

With Yao's future up in the air, the Rockets seem to be focusing their attention towards Bosh.

If they decide to deal him, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey almost certainly would like to be at the front of the line.

Bosh is 25 years old. He’s 6-10. He’s 23 points and 10 rebounds a night. He’s a great kid. He’s a Texan, too.

(Actually, he’s from Dallas, which, sort of makes him a Texan. No one’s perfect.)

He’s the best option for the Rockets filling that huge hole in the middle of their roster caused by the possible absence of Yao Ming for next season or longer.

Wow....gotta love the writing and the ego of the writer. It's a sure thing he's coming to Houston.

Yup, tons of evidence to support that claim.

Who of much value would Houston offer for Bosh for one year? I don't think that they could be easily convinced that Bosh re-signs with them next year. I guess they could look at a sign and trade.

The only issue would be Battier coming in means Marion would have to be traded or just let him go i guess. which would leave us with.

Wafer would have to be a S&T.

I don't see why they would want to trade for Bosh since they are in good shape in 2010

Wafer sucks...hard
probably the worst player for Houston in the playoffs, plus he's got an attitude

Unless they want Banks and Humps and give us Battier/Brooks/Scola and a first... then no.

They are in desperation mode, they need to sell tickets with both Yao and Mcgrady basically out for the first half of next season.

I like this trade idea jeff, I disagree with you on one thing though, I think Battier can start at SG. Th reason I think this is because in the playoffs Battier and Artest bth started and played either wing position. Also, Battier can score as well so he will be good at the 2 position. And our wing defense with Battier and Marion will be really good

OK then..... Bosh/Hump for Scola/Battier/Brooks+ pick?

Jose/Brooks/Ukic
Battier/Delfino/Derozan
Marion/Derozan
Scola/Evans/Pops
Bargnani/Rasho?/POB

Very nice imo.
