    Wow, little higher than I expected.

    But good for both really, Scola deserves it and Houston will benefit greatly from bringing him back.

    I was surprised that not many other teams went after Scola, or if they did it wasnt very public...

    Hope that 5th year is club option, i'd be ok with 4 years 38 mil, considering the market.

    Soooo it's pretty safe to say Scola will retire a Rocket. Very nice!

    Dude is 30 but he has a lot of good miles left. He never really relied on athleticism either but rather smarts and know how.

    Cheers to Morey for keeping his word when he said Lowry and Scola would both be back. It's nice to hear a GM keep his word. :grin:
