Roy Rogers RumorsAll NBA Players
Clint Capela is sort of the anti-Dwight Howard. He has no problem with an offensive role that consists primarily of running the floor, setting screens, rolling hard to the rim and rebounding. He understands the value of the vertical spacing he provides. And you’ll certainly never hear Capela complain about a lack of post touches. “Nah, that’s not his personality,” says Rockets assistant coach Roy Rogers, who works with Houston’s big men. “Clint’s a team-first guy. He understands his role on the team, and he accepts his role. He’s excited about his role.”
The selection of Mike D’Antoni as Rockets coach will not have to win the approval of guard James Harden. Harden, who had been kept abreast throughout the coaching search, endorsed the pick in an appearance as the first guest of teammate Jason Terry’s radio show. “I’m excited,” Harden said on Sirius XM on Wednesday. “I’m excited about the opportunity. I’ve been hearing great things about him, what he brings to our team. Obviously, our assistant coaches (Jeff Bzdelik and Roy Rogers) as well. A new beginning and I’m excited about the opportunity.
