Rockets' Paul to stay put with four-year max contract

As reported by a reputable insider "ESPN" Adrian Wojnarowski, Paul agreed with the "Houston" on a four-year contract for $ 160 million.

After pushing the Warriors almightily close in the Western Conference finals, the Rockets enter the 2018 offseason with the sole aim of ensuring they return next year with a better chance to get past the back-to-back champs.

Chris Paul isn't going anywhere, Rockets fans. He averaged 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game across 41 games (two starts) with the Rockets. And the Warriors went on to win Games 6 and 7.

Paul never considered leaving the Rockets in free agency, league sources said.

The deal will keep the Rockets' starting backcourt of Paul and reigning Most Valuable Player James Harden signed through the 2022-23 season. In the playoffs 33-year-old point guard were given as 21.1 points and 5.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists.

Next year will be Paul's 14th season in the league. GERALD GREEN STAYS HOME Gerald Green and his hometown Rockets are staying together.

Interesting comments from Clint. considering he's a restricted free agent who reportedly met with the Lakers about possibly signing an offer sheet just hours before the King's commitment.

Capela was a solid big man last season, averaging 13.9 points, 10.8 boards and 1.9 blocks per game.
