Rockets Sign Chris Paul To Four-Year Max Contract

05 July 2018

Chris Paul has reached agreement on a four-year, $160 million maximum contract to stay with the Houston Rockets, league sources told ESPN.

Even without James' committing, Paul seemed pretty hyped to be back in Houston, taking to Twitter to express his excitement at signing a new deal. The Rockets lost to the Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Ariza averaged 11.7 points last season for Houston, and the 33-year-old will likely be looked upon as a veteran presence in a young Phoenix locker room. No teams have come with an offer sheet, let alone one approaching the four-year, $110 million max. He averaged 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game across 41 games (two starts) with the Rockets.

The Rockets acquired Paul via trade with the Los Angeles Clippers last season.

Ariza, who turned 33 on Saturday, made $7.4 million a year ago, his fourth season of his second stint with the team.

The deal will keep the Rockets' starting backcourt of Paul and reigning Most Valuable Player James Harden signed through the 2022-23 season.

TNT's David Aldridge reported Sunday that the Lakers will have a meeting with Houston Rockets center Clint Capela, who's a restricted free agent.
