Capela is coming off his best game of the season, a 18 point, 9 rebound, 2 block outing in 27 minutes against Strasbourg, where he shot a perfect 7 for 7 from the field.
His team narrowly missed qualifying for the French Leaders Cup at Disneyland Paris, which is somewhat of a blow for NBA scouts hoping to evaluate him in person alongside the other top seven teams in the league, but he's rumored to be strongly in the mix for an invite to the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland this April, which could serve as his coming out party for those who are not yet familiar with him.
Capela's strong play in France has encouraged us to take a comprehensive look at his very distinct strengths and weaknesses as a prospect, which we've done in the following video scouting report courtesy of Mike Schmitz.
