Chris Paul is re-signing with the Houston Rockets.

According to ESPN, the nine-time All-Star will re-sign with Houston for four years and $160 million.

The deal makes Paul the second highest paid point guard in the league only behind Stephen Curry at $37.5 million.

Houston first acquired Paul last off-season when he signed with the Clippers and was traded to the Rockets for several players and draft picks.

In his one season in Houston, he averaged 18.6 points and 7.9 assists and helped the Rockets get to the Western Conference Finals where they fell to the Warriors in seven games.

Paul confirmed the deal on Twitter.

All signings will not be official until the end of the NBA moratorium period on 6 July.
