Jordan Schultz: Multiple league sources still expect the #Rockets to resign Clint Capela, despite him previously turning down Houston’s 5-year, $85M offer.

Peter Vecsey: Houston swears it’ll match any offer to Clint Capella. It’s a mistake, I submit, to force to securing a proposition. The Rockets should take care of him the way he covers for others. If they don’t, look for him to relocate next summer for the max.
Daryl Morey: “Not speaking specifically about Clint, but extensions in general are getting to be very low probability around the league, I think. The bump in the cap and then it flattening is making it hard. It’s always historically been hard, but the percentage of players that end up getting an extension has gotten lower and lower. They are difficult to pull off.”
The Rockets need Clint Capela to once again elevate his play this season. The question is whether they should extend him now or wait until next summer. Multiple league sources confirmed the Rockets and Capela have had “very introductory” extension talks.
