The big man for the Houston Rockets had his rating revealed in NBA 2K19 this morning.
Clint Capela was recently signed to a five-year extension to stay with the Houston Rockets for quite awhile. He will be a huge part of the future as the team looks to win a championship during the James Harden/Chris Paul era.
Capela will be earning at least $80 million with the rest of the $90 million being earned by incentives. Either way, he is doing pretty well for himself and will be in Rockets red for years to come.
He also had his NBA 2K19 rating released today. Each year around this time, players are excited (and sometimes disappointed) to find out what 2K Sports has rated them in the upcoming installment of their game.
In NBA 2K18, Clint Capela surged to an 87 overall rating after starting the year at a 79. His near-All-Star level play brought him there and he should continue to see a climb this season.
His 2K19 rating…
Somehow, though, NBA 2K put his rating down a bit, even after a fantastic season and playoffs for the Rockets. He will be starting the year at an 84 overall. I bet he’ll get that up by the end of the season.

Clint Capela seems to be happy, at least, about his rating for the new game. He still outplayed Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns in the playoffs, who will likely have much higher ratings than 84. In fact, KAT’s has already been confirmed to be a 91 overall.
This year, Clint Capela will have a similar role to a season before. He has improved each and every year since being drafted late in the first round in 2014, what does he have in store this year as an upgrade to his game?
We can’t wait to see Clint in both 2K19 and in the actual league next year. He is going to be a monster!
