NBA ROLE: ATHLETIC, TWO-WAY PIVOT

 

Clint Capela is a budding star; a hyperactive rebounder* & shot-blocker on the inside, Capela actually wants to play defense, which is a pretty big deal in Houston; one of the league's upper-echelon bigs – very good as a roll man: extremely active, great hands, knows how to release shots high before a defender converges; specializes at catch & finishing (non-stop lobs & dump offs via James Harden), can score in space via euros & short Js; decent hook game (room to improve), soft touch; working to secure more signature moves; very poor foul shooter, legitimate “hack-a” candidate; excellent discipline on D: doesn't bite for many fakes, secures possessions; potential All-Star? – Mike D’Antoni's designated Watch DOG/rim protector – Capela’s young, plays hard & is rapidly improving 

*avg. 12.7 rpg in ‘18-’19
