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

The Houston Rockets have ensured that All-Pro point guard Chris Paul stays in Houston for a long time as they have agreed with Paul on a four-year max contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Even without James' committing, Paul seemed pretty hyped to be back in Houston, taking to Twitter to express his excitement at signing a new deal.

Looking forward, Paul will continue to provide tenacious on-ball defense and playmaking starting at point guard for the Rockets.

Edinson Cavani punishes Portugal with two brilliant goals
Uruguay are due to play France in the last eight on Friday in Nizhny, and coach Oscar Tabarez said he was "worried" for Cavani. Uruguay and Portugal have never faced each other at a World Cup before.

For four years, "Houston" Chris Paul will earn nearly as much as his entire career in the National Basketball Association. The Rockets had a chance to win it in Game 7, but they missed 27 straight three-pointers, allowing the Warriors to escape with the win. He had five games of 20-plus points off the bench last season.

Next year will be Paul's 14th season in the league.

The 33-year-old reportedly never considered leaving, despite the odd rumour that he could look to link up with longtime friend LeBron James elsewhere. 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. Capela also scheduled a meeting with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a TNT report.
