The Rockets also hired John Lucas as the head of player development to work on weaknesses in Capela’s game, such as free throw shooting. Last season, Capela shot 38 percent from the line, so over the summer, Lucas said the 6-foot-10 center made 2,500 free throws a week. “The biggest thing is his confidence,” said Lucas, whom the Rockets took first overall in the 1976 draft. “This is going to be a process — he’s never been counted on like this; he had Dwight. He’s fighting here for his minutes, and he’s going to have to learn to play 30 to 35 minutes, but I expect if we continue to work with him, he will be an All-Star in a year or two at the most.”

Morey also could bring back Michael Beasley, who appears to be a bargain, and keep his qualifying offer and cap hold to try to keep restricted free agent Donatas Motiejunas, and still have $38 million to spend. Terrence Jones, Josh Smith and Jason Terry will be free agents. Harden, Pat Beverley, Trevor Ariza, Corey Brewer, K.J. McDaniels, Beasley and Andrew Goudelock are all under contract with the Rockets, the latter two with team options for next season; Clint Capela, Montrezl Harrell and Sam Dekker are on their rookie deals.
