Team “Optimistic” they will Reach Agreement with Centre

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Rockets offered restricted free agent Clint Capela a 5-year, $85 million deal on July 1, and are “optimistic” the centre will re-sign.

According to the report, the deal could be worth up to $90 million with incentives.

Previously, ESPN had reported Houston’s initial offer to be approximately 4 years for $60 million. Capela supposedly rejected the proposal, seeking something in the neighbourhood of 4-years and $100 million that Thunder centre Steven Adams received.

It remains to be seen whether Capela will compromise with the Rockets, or if he will stand pat on his demands. Houston might not be willing to cave, as doing so could put them in the luxury tax, as a result of the 4-year, $160 million max contract already given to Chris Paul.

Capela, 24, is one of the league’s best young big men, averaging 13.9 points, 10.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game while making¬†62.5 percent of his shots from the floor this past season.
