The Houston Rockets plan on shifting their attention toward Chris Bosh if they fail to secure a deal with Carmelo Anthony.

The Rockets have already let Bosh know how interested they are in bringing the Texas native to Houston.

Bosh would fit in perfectly with the Rockets due to his ability to stretch the floor from the forward position and guard most bigs.

The Rockets would have targeted both Bosh and Dirk Nowitzki from the start of free agency had they believed there was a realistic chance of landing either player.
