Missiles want to trade with Clint Capela

The Rockets dealt away Clint Capela, Nene and Gerald Green.

Minnesota striker Robert Covington could be the type of winger that Rockets desires, but Houston may need to involve a third team to provide the assets to the players, or draft designs for such a deal to work for the Timberwolves. Capela, despite battling plantar fasciitis, is averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds per game this season.

The Rockets took a 1.98m (6ft 6ft) line-up and 3-0 below, a small lineup that allowed for a quick game but Houston suffered from a rebound.

ESPN mentioned Capela interest from the Atlanta Hawks, who at 13-37 share the worst record in the Eastern Conference with Cleveland, and says the club has also looked at New Zealander Steven Adams of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Hernangomez, 24, had a limited role this year with Denver, appearing in 33 games and averaging 3 points and 2,5 rebounds per contest.

The Timberwolves receive Malik Beasley, Juan Hernangomez, Evan Turner, Jarred Vanderbilt, and a 2020 first-round pick from Atlanta via Brooklyn.

As ESPN's Tim MacMahon reported, the Rockets will make a move for a rotational big either via trade or the buyout market, but is this enough in the the tough West against bigs like Nikola Jokic, Anthony Davis and others? Minnesota also shipped former Knick Noah Vonleh to the Nuggets, according to the report. Atlanta will waive Chandler Parsons, along with his expiring $25.1 million contract, in order to create the necessary roster space to complete the deal.

Capela had spent his entire National Basketball Association career in Houston after the Rockets selected him as the No. 25 overall pick in the 2014 draft.
