Chris Paul, Rockets Agree to Four-Year, $160M Max Deal

Chris Paul found something special in Houston helping lead the team to the NBA’s best regular season record. More

The Houston Rockets wasted no time in locking up their franchise point guard on a long-term deal.

Paul averaged 18.6 points and 7.9 assists last season for Houston. But Paul got hurt at the end of Game 5 at the Western Conference Finals. The Houston native has agreed to a one-year deal at the $2.4 million minimum, a person familiar with the terms tells The Associated Press. Capela was a double-double machine for the Rockets, putting up 13.9 points and pulling down 10.8 rebounds per game.

All-Star Chris Paul will sign a four-year, $160M max contract to stay with the Houston Rockets, league sources tell ESPN.

The Los Angeles Lakers struck out on Paul George in National Basketball Association free agency, and LeBron James' representatives reportedly will meet with the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday. His productivity reached another level in the postseason where he averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.8 assists.

Next year will be Paul's 14th season in the league.

It's a deal that also gives the Rockets some room to work with their other top free agents, namely Clint Capela.

The Rockets drafted Capela 25th overall in 2014 and, after playing just 12 games as a rookie, he's improved each season.
