The Houston Rockets have intensified their pursuit of Chris Bosh despite not receiving word from Carmelo Anthony.

The Rockets realize that their chances of signing Bosh are largely dependent on LeBron James leaving the Miami Heat.

Bosh has basically received no word from the Heat or James, so he's now compelled to listen to offers.

Bosh could receive a four-year, $96 million deal from the Rockets while still playing for a contender, or consider Miami's five-year, $90 million offer.
