The Rockets have to make a critical decision on Clint Capela's future with the team because the Phoenix Suns are reportedly prepared to offer him a max contract. Houston needs to sign Capela to a fair deal before he hits the open market and gets presented with an offer sheet that could contain a poison pill. Signing Capela to a large contract will most likely keep the Rockets from adding a big-name free agent like LeBron James, though.
