    I made a new thread because I feel like this would get lost in the comments. Lock it up if you want.

    I see there's a trend going on with the Rockets of signing overseas players right now and talks of possibly going after Llull now. Another guy who played with Dorsey and Papa is Marko Todorovic. 22 years old, 6'11", 245 pounds. He still seems raw but he reminds me a bit of DMo when we picked him up, just bulkier and has less of an outside game. He has the shot blocking ability, he's big, he also has speed and good ball handling skills for his size. Long shot to pick him up now but with McHales post skills and Howard mentoring he could be a solid backup. Also playing along side two teammates from Barcelona would help him too.

    This video is from 3 years ago. He's definitely developed from where he was in this video and he shows promise.

    Well now he is averaging 10 pts, 6 rebs in only 25 minutes a game, so there might be something here

    The Rockets want Marko Todorovic

    Speaking in the Catalan newspaper “L’Esportiu” Marko Todorovic who is having a great season as a member of Bilbao on loan from Barcelona revealed that the Rockets are knocking his door and as Eurohoops can confirm, the interest is strong.

    As he said: “The Rockets want me and in the summer I will take my decision. I believed that my style of play doesn’t fit the NBA, but the interest of the Rockets made my change my mind”. According to Eurohoops sources, Houston intends to make an offer to the player, who may be the next overseas import of the team. The rights of the player, who was drafted by Portland, were traded to Houston last summer and in order for him to leave for the NBA, a buy out to Barcelona will be paid, which is said to be near the permitable price range by the NBA CBA.

    Llull maybe coming. We want Todorovic. We already have Harden, Howard, TJ, Dmo, Bev, Smith, Brewer, Ariza, Papa, Terry, Prigs, Johnson, KJ, & Dorsey. It's gonna be an interesting off season.

    Now as for Todorovic, he looks like Capela with an outside shot. I could see Capela taking Dorsey's spot & Todorovic taking Capela's spot---if & only if---he can shoot FTs. We don't need another big that can't hit free throws!!!

    Everyone who is under 25 is a project in Europe.
    Guys..with the new cap more and more young Europeans will think to try come over because the European teams won't be able to keep up.
    I have some doubts that an established star like Llull at this point in his carreer will indeed come over but this is the time to take the younger ones.
