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.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
