    Management got a knack for calling players back when they turn 30 or older.....so Capela will be back.

    I'm sorry you were the victim of some bad personnel decisions, Clint. You're a quality young person, good role model, and you've got a long career ahead of you, buddy.

    Thanks for the memories! I'm really sad to see you go.

    Best of luck big fella! I’m sure you’ll improve your post moves and all around game way more now that you’re not trapped in a “make Harden look as good as possible” System anymore. Make Rockets fans proud out there in the east, and put a hurting on Giannis whenever you can!

    Clint thanks for the memories! Really enjoyed watching you grow and improve as a young player. Work on your low post game and jumper--don't end up like Dwight--you're still young buddy.

    All the best, Clint!

    Measurable improvement every year since he was drafted. Just didn’t fit what we are trying to do.

    Thanks Clint , hopefully the hawks will rest you until your foot is healed and then you can show the nba world you are still a great young center .

    He can now go and develop more than just his alley oop game....he will be an all star center in this league soon.

    He was one of my favorite players. Rockets will regret this trade.

    Very proud of the player you developed into. Thanks for all you did for the city. Your the best Center in town since the Hakeem era. Continued success!

    Someone help me out here. There was a dunk that Clint did in his first or second season that was absolutely filthy and I can't for the life of me find it.

    I feel like it was rookie season against the Pelicans and he took off from like the dotted line and crammed it home. I remember thinking 'Whoa!!! we have something here!'

    Absolute stud! One of the best plays in rockets history is the Harden to Capela pick and roll and lob!

    Outside of 17-18 , 14-15 has been my favorite rockets year. Look at our bench and who we are playing in that game . 40 year old prigioni , nick johnson, joey dorsey lol . If beverley and DMo hadn't gotten hurt we would have won. Still a great mystery what happened to lead to the 15-16 **** show of a season. That team had sould and they played a fun style to watch. Of course it didnt hurt that corey brewer and josh smith had the best shooting streaks of their career lol. But still, what could have been lol .
