    Lull is the best european defender in his position. He can handle any NBA starter PG. He can do exactly the same work what Bev does. Bring energy, aggressive defense, and hit 3s. Also is an elite penetrator and a very good ball handler.

    No reason to overpay Berverley. During the past two seasons he was absenting when we needed him the most. Bev is an injury prone guy. A person with no cartilage in knees, is not a person who can make 100% effort night after night.

    I love Pat, but I think it's a player we should let go.

    Regards.

    We have tape on what Bev can do in the NBA. Meanwhile, Llull is unproven against the top talent in the world. You can't make these kinds of predictions right now.

    We have no idea what Llull is.

    Stop with this nonsense.

    Better overall player probably. Better Defender? Got to see him do it in the NBA.

    I personally was holding out hope that we'd be able to bring over Llull and keep Beverley. I think having 48 minutes of that kind of passion and intensity would be really beneficial for a team that has a tendency to go through periods of low energy in nearly every game.

    After seeing some of these contracts that are being given out, I think we'll be lucky to keep any of our free agents.

    Is it a done deal that he's coming over?

    I very much doubt Llull becomes a better NBA defender than Pat (an elite defender at his position). And anyway, those are independent and compatible decisions, signing Llull, and keeping or not Pat.

    I'm from Madrid, Spain. Real Madrid's member number 18,044. I follow every Llull's game since 6 years. I Love Houston Rockets cause i was living in Polk street 4 years of my life. I had to because my father travel for work. I know how beverley play, and i know what Llulls can do in a basketball court.

    obviamente, es solo mi opinion. Sorry if I upset someone.

    European guards are tough to gauge when translating to the NBA imo, especially jumping into the fire vs western conference elite level PGs. Can only wait and see.

    I think Bev's gonna dip. Dallas or NY will throw too much money at him.
    Sign Llull, make a trade for Collison or Lawson. Llull can be our sixth man.

    Dont let these MOORS bother you.

    Youre welcome here and I value your opinion.

    Personally I hope we do bring in Lull but part of me thinks its a smoke screen.

    They don't have Steph Curry in Euroleague. I think he can be good on defense, but I'll reserve judgment until I see him play.

    Lull will never be 2nd Team All Defense. Never. Emmanuel Davis used to be the best defender somewhere ****ty too.

    Llull is also not really a PG hes more of a SG.
