Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets have agreed to a four-year, $160 million max contract. Despite the rumors of possibly teaming up with Lebron, the 33 year-old veteran decided to remain a Rocket alongside James Harden.
This move does come with risk for Houston. Paul, the nine time all-star, helped the team to the top record in the NBA this past season, and was arguably the best player for the Rockets during the western conference finals against the Golden State Warriors.
It looked as though the Rockets were going to beat the odds and get past the Warriors, going up 3-2 and heading back home. That all came crashing down as Chris Paul, for the fourth straight year, injured his hamstring and was unable to play in games six and seven.
If you are Houston though, you cannot afford not to sign him. He was the leader of the team, an area James Harden sometimes struggles with.
The focus now for Houston is to sign Clint Capela, one of the league’s top centers. The Rockets have already lost Trevor Ariza, as he signed a 1-year, $15 million deal with the Phoenix Suns.
