Chris Paul re-signs with the Houston Rockets for 4 years 160 million dollars. The 33-year-old Paul helped the Rockets get just one game to the NBA finals. Before pulling a hamstring and having to sit out game 6 and 7 of the NBA Western Conference finals. Against the world champions “Golden State Warriors”.
The signing of Chris Paul puts the Houston Rockets well over the salary cap. With the team still having to re-sign Clint Capela or risk losing him to free agency. The Rockets already lost Trevor Ariza to the Phoenix Suns. Who agreed to a one year 15 million dollar deal with the Phoenix Suns
However, the good news for the Rockets is they were able to re-sign Gerald Green. Who agreed to a one year 2 million dollar deal. Green averaged 12 points in 41 games. Last season for the Houston Rockets. While Ariza averaged 11 points. Even though Ariza is considered a better defender than Green. It just makes better business sense to allow Ariza to walk and hold on Green Especially when we comparing salaries.
