Seeing possible Capela trade to Atl, Houston wants and wing and center. (Cam,Jabari, Len?) Capela is due 14.8 mil so this deal should work, thoughts?

 

Decent depth move for the Rockets. Harden and Russ will make sure whatever C comes back will get fed all game and look good. Nabbing Cam would be interesting but Jabari seems more likely.

Another wing would need to be included for the salaries to match along with one of the Centers and jabari

No way Hawks deal Cam and Rockets would probably want Hunter he’s the type of wing they need

Yeah I just did the math too and you're right, could likely be a three team trade but not sure with who though.

Hunter wont get sealed by Atl, also he makes 7m compared to 4m for Cam.

Rockets shoot a ton of threes and Cam is not a good shooter at all and is more of a guard. If they could add Hunter would be a massive pickup but we’ll see. Thursday should be interesting

Wait, just looked up more about this guy, he's been wrong far more than he's been correct with rumors lol

Almost everyone is outside of woj shams and Marc Stein. Always rumours and I love the wording of that tweet - ‘If’ and ‘could’. Basically what he is saying is that he has no clue and is 100% speculating.

Kind of ripped while watching the Super Bowl so I feel much smarter than I am.  However, I am trying to figure out how Houston benefits from moving Capela.  Is it a contract expiration free agency issue?  I just don't see anyone on the Hawks roster outside of Trae and Collins who provides much improvement.  If they are looking for a wing player, I think House and even Tucker and Gordon, at their age, are better options given the window available with Harden and Westbrook.  Trading Capela seems to me like they would be packing it in this year. Not that they will be competing for a championship with him.

Maybe they feel Hartenstein could fill the Capela role and they could go for a big time move in Free Agency?

 

I'm not sure. Hartenstein has been amazing though when he has been given minutes.

That makes sense.  He would obviously be cheaper.  So, maybe moving Capela for a solid wing scorer and cap relief would be the goal.

Also maybe Capela's injury is more serious than they're letting on. As their one of the few trade pieces they have adding more depth isnt a bad idea, especially with them playing small ball most of the time anyway just surround with more shooters.

It would almost certainly be a three team trade or more. Send Capela to the Hawks for draft assets, move the draft assets for wing+center.
