Capela has also proven himself to be an above-average finisher on shots around the rim, courtesy of Harden and Chris Paul, throughout his four-year tenure with the Rockets.

As a restricted free agent, Houston planned to match any offer another team made to Capela.

According to ESPN.com, it's a a five-year, $90 million.

The Rockets' starting big man had an incredible season previous year, averaging career-highs in points per game (13.9), field goal percentage (.652), rebounds per game (10.8) and blocks per game (1.9). Capela was the No. 25 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He's still just 24 years old and basically put up career-high stats across the board. He listens, learns, competes.

The Briton has won five times previously at the Hungaroring, but never in a year in which he has gone on to take the championship. "I think we had the speed today". "It's great for the team to have a one-two", added Hamilton.

While much of this summer's National Basketball Association free agency madness has come to an end, there was still one big deal out there waiting to be signed: restricted free agent Clint Capela.

Although Capela's brand new deal will push the Rockets' payroll up to $136 million this upcoming season, the return of the Swiss Bank should likely help to alleviate the concern of fans throughout Clutch City.

Harden - the 2017-18 NBA MVP - signed a multi-year contract in 2017 with the Rockets and will make more than $30 million in 2018.

He was rumored to want a similar contract to the four-year, $100 million deal center Steven Adams signed with the Thunder.
