With so many teams clearing out cap space this summer it will likely make 30-year old Luis Scola a nice prize for a team that misses out on the prime free agents. With that in mind the Rockets are likely going to have to ante up to bring him back and that they should. Scola played in 82 games (all starts) for the Rockets last season and he averaged 32.6 minutes, 16.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He has now played in 246 games (203 starts) in his three years with the Rockets and he is averaging 29.2 minutes, 13.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. With Yao Ming still a little iffy and injury prone the Rockets can’t afford to let Scola get away, period!
