Additionally, Capela received an additional $1 million this season because to a deal that took him from Houston to Atlanta before the season began.
Capela and Houston agreed to an extension of their deal back in 2018. The deal contained two “likely” incentives:
1) $1 million if he reached the conference championship game.

The Rockets reaching the Western Conference Finals at the time appeared likely. They had just arrived there the season before, missing the NBA Finals by one game. And they had all of their essential components back.
However, the Rockets missed the conference finals in 2019 and 2020 due to breakdowns in team chemistry involving James Harden, Chris Paul, and later Russell Westbrook.
Capela found himself suddenly a disposable player as the squad began its rebuilding process. He got traded to the Hawks as part of a four-team deal and looked like he was going from one rebuilding situation to another.
Only the Hawks exceeded expectations this year, by a wide margin. They beat the New York Knicks in five games in the opening round, then upset the number-one seed Philadelphia 76ers in the semis, including winning three games on the road.
Meanwhile, the Rockets finished with the worst record in the league, so he wouldn’t have gotten that extra money if he stayed put. Sometimes, having good luck and virtue pays off.
