    I said dominant big man. Clint Capela is not dominant. Anthony Davis, KAT, Jokic, Embiid, all have faceup and outside games. Clint Capela was traded away because he hurt the Rockets offense because he can't shoot. His offensive box plus minus is -1.0. Andre Drummond was traded for peanuts...

    The Chief mascot is over, move on. In terms of name, it represents something else now so it doesn't matter.

    Cowan also is maybe 6', shoots under 40% from the field, shoots 33% from 3. He is a defensive and offensive liability in the NBA. Great college player though. Winston and Fraizer are the same story in terms of NBA potential.
