Capela turned down a five-year contract for $85 million from Houston last week, but the texan franchise still considering him for next season according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
Multiple league sources still expect the #Rockets to resign Clint Capela, despite him previously turning down Houston’s 5-year, $85M offer.

Capela is currently a restricted free agent and the Rockets can match any offer sheet he signs with another team. He’s seeking a contract similar to the four-year, $100 millions deal.
He has started 133 games over the last two seasons for Houston, averaging 13.9 points and 10.8 rebounds per game on a successful season for the Rockets.
Houston re-signed point guard Chris Paul to a four-year contract worth a reported $160 million earlier this month, but they lost forward Trevor Ariza, who agreed a one-year, $15 million deal with Phoenix Suns in the beginning of free agency last July first.
