Clint Capela, the star player of Houston Rockets in the NBA 2019 finals is in hot demands. The 25-year-old Swiss player had an amazing performance this season, even though his team lost to Golden State Warriors. Capela had an outstanding arc, with an average of 16.6 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game. He even had a 64.8 percentage of shooting from floor ratio, being named as excellent transition scorer and finisher.
Houston Rockets has decided to put their entire team on sale, to make a new rooster for the upcoming season. Here are the 4 teams which could use a talented player as Clint Capela in their squad.
As per the reports, the most probable team that could buy Clint Capela is the Dallas Mavericks. Kristaps Porzingis and Capela in the front can make an amazing short blocker due for the team. Dallas also has Luka Donric, and they could have the most productive under 25 years player combination. It would be the best thing for both Clint Capela and Dallas Mavericks.
Atlanta Hawks has two prominent positions open in their team, point guard and power forward. The star players of Atlanta Hawks, Trae Young, and John Collins are struggling to be proper defenders. With Capela’s 6 foot 10 inch height, leaping ability and good defense, he would be an ideal candidate for Hawks.
Sacramento Kings had an amazing regular season, where they won a total of 39 games. They were so close to making it to the playoffs, just needed a few extra efforts. Clint Capela playing at the center for Kings could do that next NBA season. Moreover, Sacramento Kings have already $38 million to spend and is thinking to replace Willie Cauley-Stain.
San Antonio Spurs
Next team in line that could use Clint Capela is the San Antonio Spurs, which would benefit a lot from the deal. Although SA Spurs doesn’t do a lot of trading, their ball-handler position is empty since last year. Even though there are other players in the team such as Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, Bryn Forbes, and Lonnie Walker, the team could use Capela as a young guard also.
