RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Even though he spent the vast majority of his season playing for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the D-League last season, Capela did see some NBA action late in the season. In his rookie season, he averaged 2.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.2 assits, 0.1 steals, and 0.8 blocks in eight minutes per game through 12 contests. The Swiss big man shot 48 percent from the field in his brief time with the Rockets and was thrown into action because of all the injuries the Rockets' big men faced this year. While he was a star over in Europe, Capela is still working on translating his game to the NBA, and a knee injury keeping him out of summer league this offseason doesn't help his development. Capela is a very raw offensive player with the abilty to use his size and strength to grab a lot of rebounds and block shots. With only Donatas Motiejunas and Dwight Howard ahead of him on the depth chart, it is possible that, as long as he remains healthy, he gets some minutes this season considering that both Howard and Motiejunas are coming off of their own respective injuries from last year.

2014-15

At 6-11, 211 pounds, Capela, the Rockets' first-round pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, is an extremely athletic big man who can run the floor and who also has a chance of becoming a defensive force with elite shot blocking potential. Capela is a native of Switzerland and has been playing in France for the past three years with Elan Chalon of the LNB Pro A League. After the 2014 season in France, Capela was named the French League Rising Star, along with being recognized as the French League Most Improved Player. Capela has a long road ahead of him if he's trying to get playing time with the Rockets in the next few seasons. He'll probably come in entrenched near the bottom of the power forward depth chart as a developmental project. With the Rockets expected to make another playoff run this season, it's tough to see Capela getting many minutes as a rookie, and he'll have to show an extremely improved game to get a larger share of playing time. It's always questionable how well international players will adapt to the NBA game.
