Chris Paul returning to Houston Rockets for 'unfinished business'

Paul George committing to deal with Thunder gets 2018 NBA Free Agency started

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). For now, the Rockets are content to have Paul back in the fold.

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.

The deal is valued at $160 million over 4 years, giving the team a sizeable window to break down the Golden State Warriors, winners of 3 out of 4 'ships. Paul missed least 20 games in each of the past two seasons due to different injuries.

The veteran point guard confirmed reports of his return on Twitter Saturday night.
