The Houston Rockets believed if Chris Paul stayed healthy, they would have beat the Golden State Warriors. CP3 will sign a four-year, $160 million deal with the Rockets. Capela was a double-double machine for the Rockets, putting up 13.9 points and pulling down 10.8 rebounds per game. Paul, James Harden and Co. should be one of the league's two to three best teams in 2018-19.

On the third day of free agency, Rockets starting center Clint Capela is not finding the kinds of offers he was hoping for.

During the first day of the National Basketball Association free agency period, the Houston Rockets re-signed two key players, but lost a critical piece on the defensive side.

The 33-year-old Paul was eligible to sign a five-year maximum contract, but the Rockets took his age and injury problems into consideration. Point guard playing in the League since the season 2005-2006. In his career, Paul is averaging 18.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 9.8 assists in 892 games. Capela also scheduled a meeting with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a TNT report. The team at one point won 14 consecutive games with Paul in the lineup, so he was clearly a huge reason the team finished the season with the 1-seed in the Western Conference.
