Clint Capela
PF/C, 6’10, 240lbs, 23 years old, 3 years of experience

Not only did he not struggle in his first year as a full-time starter, but he thrived in it. Capela's athleticism, rolling and running was the perfect compliment to Harden's ability to dissect and D'Antoni's spread offence, while his rebounding sustained what would otherwise be a team weakness, and his rim protection allowed for a four-out approach. He even added 15 points to his free throw percentage, up to a striking 53.1%, mak-ing him one of the best 438 free-throw shooters in the league today. Capela is becoming a star role player, and if an extension can be signed for below his maximum amount, it is worth doing, because at his rate of growth and at this age, he will soon be a max-calibre player. (Note to Dwight Howard: if you played like this, you'd be so much better, so much more popular, and so much more desired by teams. This could have been you. But no, you wanted to be a post-up player.)

Player Plan: One year of rookie scale salary remaining, and extension eligible this summer. Could command quite a lot on the open market. Probably to be maxed beforehand.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 14th November 2017
2017-11-14

Capela is averaging career highs thus far this season in every major statistical category. He is averaging 13.3 points, 11.5 rebounds, 1.9 blocks, 1.3 assists and 0.9 steals per game, shooting 69.6% from the field and a much-improved 70.3% from the line. His true shooting percentage is 70.8%, his PER is 27.6, and his rise to stardom is almost complete. At this point, Capela is almost as close is reasonably possible to a surefire double double; in the fourteen games thus far, he has had eight of them, and never being that far away from the other six. And at this price, Capela shines amongst his big man peers. Pau Gaso’s $17.5 million cost yields only 10.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.5 blocks per game averages, while Serge Ibaka’s $16.7 million returns only 13.3 ppg/5.6 rpg/1.0 bpg. Take Capela.
