After LeBron's big decision, which free agency and trade moves lie ahead for the Houston Rockets?
LeBron James heading back to Cleveland has changed the face of the NBA.
It was also the free agency decision holding up everything else, and like a game of dominoes, teams are now expected to begin making key moves.
Houston Rockets are now said to be at an advanced stage in terms of signing Chris Bosh, cites Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarowski:

Bosh opted out of his contract in Miami along with LeBron and Dwyane Wade, and would have been tempted to stay if his teammate had done too.
He has in recent months been linked to the Wizards and the Bulls, but it is Houston who are most serious about his signature.
The Rockets tonight confirmed the trade of Jeremy Lin to the LA Lakers for a first round draft pick, and are expected to trade Omer Asik to the New Orleans Pelicans.
ESPN write that Bosh has a maximum $88 million four-year offer on the table from the Rockets, and would make a formidable trio with James Harden and Dwight Howard.
Miami, having already lost LeBron, are not said to be willing to give up on Bosh without a fight, and may even have the edge.
