“Capela's length, explosiveness, and touch around the hoop make him a very good finisher around the hoop, where an incredible 84.9% of his opportunities came from, far and away the most out of anybody in this group. The work he still needs to put in shows up when Capela stepped away from the hoop, as he only attempted 0.3 jump shots per game, connecting on only 21.4% of the very small amount of jump shots he attempted.”DraftExpress.com

“Capela is as good as any athlete ever coming from Europe ... What really separates him is his explosiveness around the rim ... He isn’t scared of contact and can really finish above the rim with one of two hands ... He also can really run the floor on finding easy layups and dunks in transition.”NBADraft.net

“Capela is still a very raw talent with a lot of upside, but has also developed solid instinct, particularly on the defensive end ... He also makes passes you would not expect from a player like him ... His ability to finish around the rim is pretty good, which makes him a very dangerous player on Pick and Roll situation and circling around the basket.”NBADraft.net

“Right now a team drafting Capela is drafting him for his size and athletic ability. There's a little Serge Ibaka in him, and there's the rub. After watching how valuable a true rim protector was to the Thunder in their playoff series versus the Spurs, someone is going to take him in the first round and be patient.”ESPN.com
