Rockets strike deal to bring back Clint Capela

Restricted free agent center Clint Capela signed a five-year, $90 million contract with the Houston Rockets, ESPN reported Friday. The 24-year-old big man averaged a career-best 13.9 points and 10.8 rebounds per game last season for the top regular-season team in the National Basketball Association.

The Rockets finished last season with a 65-17 record and advanced to the Western Conference Finals, where they fell to the Warriors in seven games. He listens, learns, competes. Asked if he's been recruiting Anthony, Harden replied, "Nah". He's at a point where he knows what he wants, he knows where he wants to be. It took nearly a month for the Rockets to sign their up-and-coming big man after his breakout season. Houston still has $4.5 million remaining of the tax midlevel.

The Rockets kept Capela on a contract less than fellow centers Steven Adams (four years, $100 million) and Hassan Whiteside (four years, $98 million) - with an extra year - and that could prove to be one of the biggest bargains in the near future for the Rockets.

D'autre part, la SNCF va oeuvrer pour faire circuler un nombre réduit de trains à Montparnasse, dans la journée. Sur les panneaux d'affichage, la plupart des trains affichaient dans l'après-midi des retards de 2 à 3 heures.

Imagine how good their chemistry will be as they get more and more playing time under their belts with the Rockets.

He was equally as impressive against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz in the West semis - 13.0 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 3.6 blocks. His 42 double-doubles were eighth most in the league.

Capela appeared to acknowledge the agreement on Instagram, writing: "Houston".
