Yao Ming could leave the Houston Rockets

According to Chinese sources, the talks between Yao Ming and the Houston Rockets to extend the center's contract are in a delicate situation. The Chinese All-Star wants a 6-year contract to agree to re-sign with the Rockets, while the NBA franchise is only willing to offer a 4-year contract. Yao Ming, who has missed the entire last season due to a foot injury, will become a free agent next summer, and could decide to sign with another team after 8 seasons in Houston.

Wow, Yao is really looking for a 6 year contract right now? And the Rockets are actually willing to offer him 4 years right now? Who even knows if the guy will be able to play again at all.... I wonder what sort of money we're talking about? There's no way they are offering him anywhere near max-money.... I wonder how much Yao is realistically wanting?

Whatever they offer him I hope it's a 4 year deal with a team option. He is not in a good position to negotiate at this time. Why would he ask for such a long contract unless he knows something about him injury that the Rockets don't know. Rockets be care about this decision. Carmelo Anthony is going to be a free agent next year and we could use a superstar like him in our organization.
