Paul signed with the Houston a contract for $ 160 million

So much for the reports about tension between Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets.

Paul confirmed the deal on Twitter. He was referring to Rockets' run to the Western Conference Finals where they took the Golden State Warriors to seven games.

Looking forward, Paul will continue to provide tenacious on-ball defense and playmaking starting at point guard for the Rockets. No teams have come with an offer sheet, let alone one approaching the four-year, $110 million max. 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.

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.
