The Rockets and Paul agreed to a new contract just after midnight E.T. on Sunday, locking up the All-NBA point guard to a long-term deal in Houston. The Rockets lost to the Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.

Looking forward, Paul will continue to provide tenacious on-ball defense and playmaking starting at point guard for the Rockets. The Warriors took advantage of his absence and went on to repeat as champions. While Paul never considered leaving the Rockets in free agency, league sources say there was tension about the length of his new contract.

Houston first acquired Paul last offseason when he signed with the Clippers and was traded to the Rockets for several players and draft picks. His productivity reached another level in the postseason where he averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.8 assists. He averaged 11.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in 67 contests while often defending opposing teams' top-scoring wing.


In another piece of business, the Rockets were also lucky to land high-flyer Gerald Green on a veteran minimum's salary of $2.4 million.

Capela has started 133 games over the last two seasons.

The Lakers are interested in Clint Capela.
