HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Less than a week after getting called up to Houston, the Rockets have sent Clint Capela back to their D-League affiliate of Rio Grande Valley.
In his brief time with the Rockets this time around, Capela did see some minutes during the Rockets’ Sunday win over the Lakers. The rookie center is still looking for his first NBA points in his five games this season.
With Rio Grande Valley, Capela has averaged 14.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks in 18 games.
Capela was the Rockets’ first-round pick, 25th overall, in the 2014 NBA Draft.
