    New blog from Mark Stein talks Llull and new interest in joining the NBA. Here is a quick snippet from the article

    One well-placed source told me in Spain: There's a "pretty decent" chance Llull agrees to sample the NBA next season.

    The scouting report on Llull from one Spanish League expert: "He's a really good pick-and-roll player. He takes and makes big shots. He's great in the open floor and very tough. He's a better athlete than you think, too. But he needs to be on an up-tempo team in the NBA -- Houston, Phoenix, Golden State and so forth -- so he can play in the open floor and run pick-and-roll."

    Could see us pairing llull with the NOP and one of the gluts of our PF hamper, probably Capella since we're in a win-now mode.

    Bunch of people will look foolish when he comes over. He's a great fit next to Harden.

    He would be a very good fit with us. We desperately need PG production.

    Has this term ever been used for a black guy? Or can we just interpret this as "he may be white but he's also athletic."

    and nobody ever described shane as sneaky athletic, if they did they were wrong. he picked his spots and got into good position instead.
