Due to the nature of Capela’s deal, the Rockets can match any offer sheet the Lakers present to Capela and retain his services for the future. The Rockets have also indicated their motivation for re-signing Capela for the future as they want to run it back with Golden State next season.
Capela averaged 13.9 points, and 10.8 rebounds per game on 65% shooting during the 2017-18 season.
