Chris Bosh, Miami Heat finalizing max-deal

The Miami Heat lost out on LeBron James, who chose to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers rather than keep his talents in South Beach. That left the Heat scrambling before the remaining two pieces of their “Big Three” left. Dwyane Wade was reportedly contacted by the Chicago Bulls, his hometown team, to gauge interest and Chris Bosh had an offer from the Houston Rockets ready to sign.

The Heat acted quickly offering Bosh a full five-year max deal.

And it wasn’t long before Bosh and the Heat were finalizing that deal.

So what does this mean for the Dallas Mavericks? Well, the good news is the Houston Rockets didn’t get Chris Bosh. The bad news is that it makes it more likely that the Rockets match the offer sheet for Chandler Parsons. The Mavericks can’t sign other free agents with that cap space while it is tied up to Parsons either. For instance, Trevor Ariza would be another back up plan, but the Washington Wizards are trying to get a deal done before the Rockets match Parsons’ offer sheet and free up that cap space for the Mavericks to pursue other players like Ariza.
