    Very possible. It is not about what he is worth. It all about what the market dictates.

    rich supply of centers, not many teams with cap room and RFA status. Makes a difference.

    As expected.

    However, if for whatever reason why he doesn't stay a Rocket, Clint better thank James for getting him PAID for essentially spoon feeding him his opportunities on the court.

    The market is TIGHTENING out there. Lou Williams signing a "below market" deal with a TEAM OPTION?
    Mirotic adamant about not testing free agency this summer?

    Moving Ryno is going to be brutally expensive.

    I never expected him to get a max, my thinking was something like 17-18 mil/yr

    Possibly as low as 12 mil/yr tho?? Man, fck DJ, sign me up for that.

    Clint is certainly worth more than $12 million. That would be a crazy good deal.

    15-17 million is much, much more palatable than some of the other crazy numbers some around here have thrown around.

    I doubt it, we will be lucky if we can get him at 4/60.

    He should get whatever he can, he is worth it.

    That's what I'm thinking. Remember Clint better on himself when he got drafted. I believe he'll do it again this season. He works hard and deserves to be compensated as so.

    Capela at anything between 12-18 mil/yr is good-great value

    he fits what we do perfectly and keeps improving...17-18 ppg, 12-13 rpg, and 2.5 bpg isn’t outlandish for him in the future

    I love Capela because he came over with not much being expected of him and has developed into a very good starting C

    Clint might earn more than 18 mil.

    His skill set is needed and difficult to replace, plus he's young and improving.
