Clint Capela Turns Down Big Offer From Houston Rockets ! Reports : Carmelo Anthony, Clint Capela & Marcus Smart and more

If Clint Capela does, in fact, want his next contract to hover around the 0-million mark over four years , it appears the Houston Rockets ' initial offer was close, albeit with an extra year .

But he’s a restricted free agent, and there is no obvious team to press Houston with an offer sheet. So, the Rockets have leverage.

Then again, so does Capela. He could accept his qualifying offer, become an unrestricted free agent next summer and unilaterally leave Houston.

These situations tend to result in lengthy standoffs – with plenty of leaks as both sides try to gain an upper hand. It’s not always clear which of these reports are accurate, but both sides want to present themselves as being reasonable and the other side as being too difficult. This is obviously the Rockets’ attempt.
