Capela’s deal now runs through the 2024-25 season, as he still has two years left on his current deal.

Per ESPN’s Bobby Marks, Capela will make around $20.6 million in 2023-24 and $22.3 million the next season, for a base value of nearly $43 million over two years, and another $4 million in incentives.

He becomes the third member of the Hawks to sign a extension this season, joining guard Trae Young and power forward John Collins.

“His representatives at Wasserman completed the new deal with Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk ahead of an Oct. 18 deadline for the extension,” Wojnarowski reported.

Capela, 27, is 6-foot-10 and was a major player in the Hawks’ surprising run to the Eastern Conference finals, averaging 15.2 points and an NBA-best 14.3 rebounds in 53 regular-season games.

As Wojnarowski added, “He played an immense role in improving the Hawks’ defense, finishing with a 4.98 defensive real plus-minus, according to ESPN’s Stats & Info. He trailed only Utah’s Rudy Gobert, the league’s defensive player of the year, in that category.”
