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

Kris Dunn (32) of Chicago Bulls in action against Chris Paul (3) of Houston Rockets during the National Basketball Association game between Chicago Bulls and Houston rockets, on January 9, 2018 in Chicago, United States.

The 33-year-old enjoyed great success in his first season with the Rockets.

The point guard, 33, is a nine-time All-Star and helped lead the Rockets to the best record in the National Basketball Association last season (65-17). By signing Chris Paul back, it looks as though the Rockets are moving in the right direction to be a contender yet again next season.

The Los Angeles Lakers struck out on Paul George in National Basketball Association free agency, and LeBron James' representatives reportedly will meet with the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday. The Houston native has agreed to a one-year deal at the $2.4 million minimum, a person familiar with the terms tells The Associated Press.




The breakdown of the payouts over the four years of this contract for Paul would be $35.6M in 2018-19, $38.5M in 2019-20, $41.4M in 2020-21 and $44.2M in the final year of the deal in 2021-22.

Green, a major pickup for the Rockets who was initially signed to a 10-day contract in December, experienced a career resurgence in his second stint with his hometown team, averaging 12.1 points per game while also draining 37% of his seven three-point attempts per contest.

With LeBron James already committing to the Los Angeles Lakers, Clint Capela's star as a free agent just got a little shinier with apparently plenty of teams having contact with the center's agent, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN (h/t Ben DuBose of Locked On Rockets).
