Chris Paul staying with Rockets

Paul George committing to deal with Thunder gets 2018 NBA Free Agency started

The Houston Rockets have ensured that All-Pro point guard Chris Paul stays in Houston for a long time as they have agreed with Paul on a four-year max contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Capela was an integral part of Houston's offense with James Harden and Chris Paul looking often for him for lob passes whenever any of the two manages to break down opposing defenses. The expectation always was that Paul would return to Houston given all the success the team enjoyed last season. In the Western Conference Finals, the Rockets took a 3-2 series lead but Paul was injured late in Game 5 and the Golden State Warriors would go on to win the next two games and eventually, the National Basketball Association title.

As anticipated, point guard Chris Paul remained with the Houston Rockets.

For four years, "Houston" Chris Paul will earn nearly as much as his entire career in the National Basketball Association.

The 33-year-old Paul was eligible to sign a five-year maximum contract, but the Rockets took his age and injury problems into consideration.

Capela was a solid big man last season, averaging 13.9 points, 10.8 boards and 1.9 blocks per game. In his career, Paul is averaging 18.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 9.8 assists in 892 games.

Now with Paul signed for the foreseeable future, Houston can focus its efforts on retaining center Clint Capela and forward Trevor Ariza.
