Bosh agrees to return to Heat with five-year, $118 million deal
Miami may have lost LeBron James, but it appears the other two stars will be back after Chris Bosh agrees to a five-year, $118 million deal.

The moves comes hours after Houston cleared max cap space to give Bosh the max four-year, $88 million a team outside of Miami could offer. They offered no state income tax, a roster stacked to the gills with James Harden, Dwight Howard, Bosh, and Chandler Parsons after the Rockets would have matched the max offer sheet the Mavericks signed Parsons to.
Instead, Bosh returns to a city he has grown to love where he's made his home, alongside likely Dwyane Wade and.... nothing. The Heat are expected to bring back Udonis Haslem who will join free agent acquisitions Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts. In the Eastern Conference, provided the Heat sign one more impact player, likely at an overpay like Luol Deng or Trevor Ariza, Miami can probably still make a fourth seed. Bosh will have to return to being the No.1 option for his team for the first time since 2010 when he joined Miami.
Bosh will be 35 at the end of the contract, but Miami refused to simply accept a rebuild. Now they focus on trying to pull together a decent team around the stars with the cap space afforded by James' departure.
