    I was disappointed like everyone else with Capela's effort this past post season. The Warriors series IMO really showed, that Capela is 100% a system player. I believe we can find a replacement (DJ). Do you believe he's gone before the season starts? If so why? If not why?

    I don't see a team that needs capela, who will give houston back anything much of value for what the rockets need at this point. We've seen what capela can do when he's playing well. no way is houston getting a player like that in return

    No.

    As for the constant DeAndre Jordan dream, take it away @YOLO

    No we just need Faried to show Capela how to play with heart.

    Most likely, he’ll be on the roster opening night, but he has the highest trade value of anyone on this team besides Harden. We need to get an impact wing player this summer, so I’d be comfortable flipping Capela for that guy:

    -Jaylen Brown
    -Jimmy Butler (three-way deal where we get a valuable pick from a team like ATL and route that to Philly)
    -Bogdanovic (SAC)
    -Brandon Ingram

    Capela was especially useless this year against the Warriors since he lost the ability to stay with guards on the perimeter. If he stays, he NEEDS to get lighter on his feet and develop a basic hook shot to punish small lineups

    Wouldn't bet on either option at this point, but my guess is that Gordon is the player being traded.

    Basically, ClutchFans mentality is that anyone born in or near Houston would love to come back and play for the Rockets at that really steep H-Town discount.

    can't wait for De'Aaron Fox to come home. I heard he wants to sign his next contract here once cp3's runs out

    I heard Dennis Quaid wants to do all his movies in Houston for free because he misses Ninfa's.

    We still need him for 80% of the teams in the league.

    Those guys used to throw the Chronicle at my house when my family lived in Willowbend. Now one has been married to Meg Ryan and the other is certifiably insane. :D

    He is one of our main trade pieces, but the value of centers around the league is at an all time low. So don't know if we will be able to get something great in return.

    He should be ashamed that Draymond was intimidating him at the rim, lol.

    Unless New Orleans is interested in 4 picks + Capela for Davis, then probably not.
