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.
Capela turned down the Rockets’ five-year, $85 million offer on the first day of free agency. Rival teams didn’t have the cap space to make a compelling offer to Capela.
