    Last summer, he signed an extension with the Rockets on a huge $90M/5 year deal.
    Was it a good deal or was it a mistake?

    Dump it. You can find similar skill set for much cheaper.

    I’m pretty down on Capela but he’s a solid center.... just until he plays golden state in the playoffs.

    He’s very good against 95% of nba teams and looks to be worth his contract. He’s just not very good against the 1 team (maybe 2) that we need to worry about.

    It’s an adequate contract.

    Hopefully the contract will be a good trade chip

    Yes, he stank against the warriors. Donkey rode him hard.

    It's not like we matched a dump truck offer from a different team nor did his season numbers regress. I think the incentives keep him honest though he needs to figure out where his heart is

    I'm keeping the sig and giving him a chance to redeem himself

    It's a good deal..especially in the long term. CC looks stout versus all teams, but GS. There's a lot of complaining about him, but we win a ton of games with him. What's our record now when those thre are healthy? Other teams would be happy to have him.That said, a guy like KLove can make the Warriors pay inside, while opening up the interior with the three.
    Back on CC..Look at him over the course of the year. He's improved. Don't let that last series blind you.

    He wasn't horrible last year in the playoffs against GSW. Impact was hit or miss, though.

    OBVIOUSLY, he played soft this year.

    But I don't think we do him any favors when we start him with CP3, Harden, EG and PJ Tucker. That's 4 guys 6'5 and under.

    The Rockets have taken the term "small ball" way way way way way too literally. Go with two guards and two legit SFs with size, and that's good. But not what they did.

    To me, they need a legit PF with legit size in the worst way. Yes, SF was more of their problem, but I'm not sure why PJ Tucker can't be the SF?

    I mean, if Jimmy B. is available, he's available, and you take him, but you'd still be rolling out a relative small 4 plus CC.

    This is probably how the Kevin Love concept started. He's at least a legit SF that can rebound and hit a 3 at the same time. But he's injured all the time, not efficient from 2, and a detriment defensively at this point. No clue why Detroit would do this, but I'd be interested in pursuing something like CP3+EG+2020 first for Blake+Reggie Jackson.

    Very good incentive-laden contract for a very good modern center. He's gotten better every year. If he could add a killer outside shot he would be an all-star.

    in the last 5 playoff series he outplayed or matched Towns, Gobert twice, the other two are against the warriors...

    we need him against the rest of the nba. even against the warriors he still played solid defense, just couldn't get any points or rebounds. Clint doesn't score on his own and the warriors are excellent at taking away the lob option for him. he needs to get better at rebounding against them and finishing through contact. however, the bulkier he gets the less he will be able to switch onto guards. its a give and take. we want to switch everything so he needs to stay fast, and light.

    he's paid fairly considering he is usually our 3rd best player making considerably less than what that is worth, and only against the warriors he becomes limited and overpaid.

    I'm not sure how I would feel about the Rockets ending up with Paul-Griffin-Jordan-Rivers on the team. :cool:

    The contract isn't bad and he is young, but who will want him is the real question.

    The extension and the money was to match Draymond green second contract which green signed after his rookie deal.

    It can also said that capeala extension was to match bogut's 100 million max deal signed way back when bogut was with the bucks.

    The alley oops get rewarded with big big dollas!

    Seems counterintuitive to give him the deal if you know you have to go through the Warriors and he's more of a liability against them.

    I'd have to guess Morey thought it was a contract he could move in this situation.

    I'd rather have Clint then no center at all but I'm disappointed in him.

    I think Clint's paid pretty fairly - Solid big men get paid big money , always have.

    They didn't lose that series because of Clint - They lost it because they couldn't stop Klay & Steph who went bonkers in the second half of game 6 - 33 points in the second half …. I put that on the guards. That's their guy to put the clamps on. They didn't do it.

    I look at your list of bigs and think …. who on that list would I rather have than Capela and the list is a short one and they all make significantly more.
    Even if you wanted DJ …. he made almost $23m last season and isn't as good on both ends. Steven Adams made more than $25m ….

    I'm cool with Capela at $16.4
