Capela is a fantastic fit in Atlanta, and the Hawks are presumably excited to have him around for the foreseeable future. The organization has a great core in place and is trending in the right direction.
In the 2020-21 season, Capela averaged 15.2 points, 14.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. He led the league in rebounds per game for the first time in his career.
He’s a great rim protector and textbook big man in the sense that he gets most of his work done in the post. His 6-foot-10 frame gives him a nice advantage.
The 27-year-old was a first-round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, and he’s putting together a nice career. He’ll hope to win a title with the Hawks in the near future.
