As a rookie, Capela took two shots a game.

Houston also added forward James Ennis and are the Rockets are reportedly prepared to sign Carmelo Anthony, who will receive a buyout from the Atlanta Hawks, to a veteran's minimum contract. "I've seen him work his butt off these last few years".

Capela was a restricted free agent this summer after posting 13.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and a league-high 65.2 field-goal percentage. "I'm happy for him".

While much of this summer's National Basketball Association free agency madness has come to an end, there was still one big deal out there waiting to be signed: restricted free agent Clint Capela.

Activists from the Jamiat Ulema-e Islam party protest against alleged election rigging in Peshawar , Pakistan, on July 27, 2018. In a related development, two main parties - PML-N and PPP - have agreed on formulation of a "coordinated joint strategy ".

Last season, Capela emerged as a breakout star for the Rockets. And per ESPN, "had he instead signed a $4.3 million qualifying offer, he would have entered 2019 as an unrestricted free agent".

The Rockets were 42-3 during the regular season when Capela, Harden and Chris Paul were on the floor together.

Harden - the 2017-18 NBA MVP - signed a multi-year contract in 2017 with the Rockets and will make more than $30 million in 2018. It's a fair deal all around and it has no team or player options.

Houston is organization to which he is currently worth more to than any other in the league right now.
