Is the Big Three on the verge of crumbling? A recent report by ESPN NBA insider Chris Broussard indicates that Miami Heat power forward Chris Bosh has been offered a four-year, $96 million contract by the Houston Rockets.
Sources: Rockets offer Bosh max deal of 4 yrs, $96 million. After weekend convo with LeBron and low offer from Heat, Bosh considering offer

Bosh has continually indicated that his ultimate goal is to return to Miami with LeBron James, but he’s also looking to take a max contract offer. That’s something the Heat have yet to offer to him.
Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Bosh all opted out of their contract earlier in free agency, which is an indication that the Big Three could very well see their four-year run as Eastern Conference champions come to an end.
If Bosh were to sign this deal, it would give the Rockets one of the better frontcourt units in the NBA. He would be teaming up with Dwight Howard and potentially Chandler Parsons, who is a restricted free agent.
The Rockets would have to work out a deal for Jeremy Lin, who they appear ready to move on from, if they sign Bosh.
