The Houston Rockets are reportedly turning their eye toward re-signing center Clint Capela during a busy start to free agency.

The Rockets had their best regular season in franchise history with Paul and NBA MVP James Harden leading the way. His productivity reached another level in the postseason where he averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.8 assists. Critics agreed that a 33 year old Chris Paul still posed the greater threat. In his career, Paul is averaging 18.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 9.8 assists in 892 games.

It's a deal that also gives the Rockets some room to work with their other top free agents, namely Clint Capela.
