National Basketball Association free agent rumors: Paul will re-sign with Rockets

How the Rockets should convince Le Bron James to sign with them

How the Rockets should convince Le Bron James to sign with them

Paul essentially confirmed the new deal via a post on his personal Twitter account, wherein he indicated there was "unfinished business" in Houston.

The first season in "Houston" for the Floor was a good two - time Olympic champion helped the rockets to win the regular season and in the playoffs the team of Mike D'anthony was stopped only by the National Basketball Association champion Golden state.

Paul sustained a hamstring injury in the waning moments of Game 5, which the Rockets won to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series, but he missed the final two games, both won by the Warriors. His productivity reached another level in the postseason where he averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.8 assists. But his gamble paid off as the Rockets realized this is the time frame in which they can win a championship and chose to offer Paul a max contract of 160m over 4 years.

The Rockets also ended Paul's pursuit of a conference finals appearance. Critics agreed that a 33 year old Chris Paul still posed the greater threat. Capela became a restricted free agent after the Rockets had extended him a $4.7 million qualifying offer. Capela also scheduled a meeting with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a TNT report. He had five games of 20-plus points off the bench last season. Last season, Capela averaged 13.9 points and 10.8 boards in 74 games.
