Chris Paul agrees to four-year, $160M contract with Rockets

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

Chris Paul tweeted that he has "unfinished business" in Houston. Paul, James Harden and Co. should be one of the league's two to three best teams in 2018-19. But Paul got hurt at the end of Game 5 at the Western Conference Finals.

As anticipated, point guard Chris Paul remained with the Houston Rockets. His productivity reached another level in the postseason where he averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.8 assists.

For four years, "Houston" Chris Paul will earn nearly as much as his entire career in the National Basketball Association.

How will Mexico's new president shake up NAFTA negotiations?
It is hard to see AMLO continuing his predecessors' security policies and anti-immigration efforts on Mexico's southern border. The victory came with a commanding lead for Lopez Obrador, showing a strong mandate for his policies.

All-Star Chris Paul will sign a four-year, $160M max contract to stay with the Houston Rockets, league sources tell ESPN.

The 13-year veteran, who just finished his first season in Houston after spending six years each in New Orleans and with the Los Angeles Clippers, has career averages of 18.7 points, 9.8 assists and 4.5 rebounds in 35.3 minutes per game.

Chris Paul led the National Basketball Association in Real Plus-Minus last season.

Kane admits his confidence is 'sky high' ahead of Colombia
We can go further.' The game looks like being a niggly affair after the Swedes tried to wind up their opponents ahead of kick-off. Colombia's Carlos Sanchez has insisted England a far more than a one-man team reliant on their captain Harry Kane .

Aside from Paul, the Rockets also kept key swingman Gerald Green via a one-year deal worth $2.4 million. The Rockets understandably haven't made a can't-refuse offer to Capela yet because of those tax worries, but there is also no indication thus far that a team out there is on the brink of luring him out of Houston.

Now with Paul signed for the foreseeable future, Houston can focus its efforts on retaining center Clint Capela and forward Trevor Ariza.

LeBron James Declined His Player Option…So Now What?
James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018-19 season had he exercised his option with the Cavs. If the Lakers can land another star, their chances of signing James are extremely high.
