Chris Paul
Houston Rockets point-guard Chris Paul has come out to dismiss rumours linking him with a move away from the franchise.

Reports this month suggested that the 34-year-old asked the Rockets to trade him following a rumoured bust-up with teammate James Harden.

Paul, though, has dismissed these reports and stated that he is happy to remain in Houston following yet another disappointing season for the Rockets.

"I never asked for a trade," Paul said on Sunday, via the Houston Chronicle.

"I never demanded a trade … I'll be in Houston. I'm happy about that. I'm very happy about that. I'm good."

Houston lost to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference semi-finals, with the Toronto Raptors ultimately claiming a maiden title following a 4-2 win over the Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Paul still has three years and a whopping $125million left on his contract, and is determined to see out the remaining years as the Rockets go in search of a first title since back-to-back wins in the mid 90's.

"There's only one team that wins at the end of the year, you know what I mean?" Paul added. "Since I went to Houston, from day one, it's been about winning games. It's always about winning games."
