NBA rumors: Mavs interested in Clint Capela?

After another playoff exit at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets — maybe because their top two stars are not playing nice with one another — are looking to overhaul their roster. An NBA source tells DBcom that starting on Tuesday, the Rockets started the process of making “for-sale” phone calls. And when one of those calls is placed to Dallas, and the subject is center Clint Capela? The Mavericks will be interested.

Wojnarowski reports that all players under contract, besides James Harden, could be moved in the right deal. That leaves players such as aging point guard Chris Paul, the star who is reportedly in conflict with Harden. And it leaves a player like Capela, who an NBA source tells DBcom the Mavs surely envision as a fine front-court partner alongside Kristaps Porzingis.
The Rockets have been more aggressive in offering up Capela in recent days, sources said. Houston has lost in the conference final and conference semifinal to Golden State in consecutive years.
