Chris Paul is reportedly headed back to Houston on a four-year deal.

Chris Paul says he's staying with the Houston Rockets.

The star point guard wasted no time once the free agency window opened, and has decided to stay put with the team that finished last season with the NBA's best regular-season record.

ESPN reported it is a four-year deal that will be worth $160 million. The move was also reported by Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Paul announced on Twitter that he has ''Unfinished Business'' in Houston, which took Golden State to seven games in the Western Conference finals. Paul missed the last two games of that series with an injury, and the Rockets wasted big leads in both of those games.

He averaged 18.6 points and 7.9 assists last season with the Rockets, who went 65-17 led by Paul and newly minted NBA MVP James Harden.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
