Rockets discussing Clint Capela trade with multiple teams

Rockets discussing Clint Capela trade with multiple teams

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets, Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves struck the four-way deal - the largest the league has seen in two decades.

In talks around the league, the Rockets are expressing hope they can find a deal - or a series of deals - that would bring them back a wing and a center for Capela by Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, sources said. He arrived as a project, became a full-time starter after Dwight Howard's departure in the summer of 2016 and received a five-year deal worth $80 million plus incentives after playing a major role in the Rockets' run to the 2017 Western Conference finals.

The Rockets have gone 3-0 in the span using a lineup of players 6-feet-6 (1.98m) and under, a small lineup that has allowed for fast-paced play but left Houston suffering in rebounding.

Capela is under contract for three more seasons, and joins Atlanta's young core of Trae Young, Kevin Huerter and John Collins. The Swiss center has been a good option from the bench averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds this season.

ESPN and the Houston Chronicle say the Rockets seek an outside shooter and are willing to part with Capela, who has missed the team's past three games.

Specifically, Minnesota has been unwilling to include their 2020 unprotected first round pick in negotiations, which is why they were looking to get involved in a three-way deal with Houston and Atlanta in the first place.

Basketball fans are eagerly awaiting the first big domino to fall as we approach the NBA's trade deadline, but thus far nothing has materialized.

The Nuggets get Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh, Shabazz Napier, Keita Bates-Diop, and a first-round pick from Houston.
