According to ESPN, the nine-time All-Star will re-sign with Houston for four years and $160 million.
Paul posted this on twitter shortly after the 11:01 pm central opening of free agency.

The win at the end of the 2015-2016 season marked the city of Cleveland's first professional sports title in 52 years. After years of struggling, the Lakers now have the best player in the world to lead their impressive young core.
The 33-year-old enjoyed great success in his first season with the Rockets.
For Paul and the rest of his Houston teammates, this ensures that the team has a point guard in place to continue its pursuit of the Golden State Warriors dynasty atop the Western Conference. The Houston native has agreed to a one-year deal at the $2.4 million minimum, a person familiar with the terms tells The Associated Press. He averaged 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game across 41 games (two starts) with the Rockets.

Paul's deal expired at the end of the 2018 season, and the promise of resigning on a max contract was part of the reason he worked so hard to orchestrate a trade from the Clippers previous year.
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). 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. The question remains, whether Rocket's front office can convince center Clint Capela to take a hometown discount.
