Paul to receive four-year max deal to stay with Rockets

Chris Paul has agreed to a four-year, max contract to remain with the Rockets.

Chris Paul didn’t get to finish his first season with the Houston Rockets because of an injured right hamstring.

He’ll get another opportunity to do so, however, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Paul will sign a four-year, $160-million max contract to remain with the Rockets.

Paul, acquired in a trade last summer from the Los Angeles Clippers, averaged 18.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 7.9 assists while shooting 46.0 percent from the field and 38.0 percent from three in his first season with Houston.

He advanced to the conference finals for the first time in his career, but it was cut short, as the All-Star suffered a right hamstring injury in Game 5 against the Golden State Warriors and he was forced to miss Game 6 and 7, which the Warriors won to advance to the Finals, where they defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in four games.
