In 2018, Chris signed a four-year $160 million deal with the Houston Rockets, earning him nearly $40 million playing for the Rockets organization. During his time there, he was paired with James Harden and was expected to help lead the team to a championship.

However, despite having a strong regular season record, the team struggled in the playoffs and failed to make it past the second round. This resulted in Chris’s split with Houston as he now headed to Oklahoma
