Capela is currently a restricted free agent, meaning he’s eligible to sign an offer sheet with another team and then the Rockets have to decide if they want to match the offer or not.
In 74 games this past season with the Rockets, Capela averaged 13.9 points and 10.8 rebounds while shooting 65.2 percent from the field. Most of his baskets were delivered by MVP James Harden.
