    Maybe use the MLE on him and trade the rights to Llull?

    Sergio Rodriguez will suffer next year if he comes. Llull's game style is much more suitable for Nba.

    Europe: S-Rod>Llull
    Nba: Llull>S-Rod

    No. I don't think a team is going to give Rodriguez much more than the minimum. I wonder if we could talk him into a short term deal.

    I wouldn't mind that, but that will depend if Llull wants to stay in Madrid or not.

    Morey should definitely consider Rodriguez with the MLE. Our options are pretty limited, unless we luck out on Lowry or Lawson.

    Is he is a FA? If yes, then it would be really nice to get him for less than the MLE.

    Those are my thoughts. He's certainly not getting a starting job, a championship caliber teams won't trust him as a primary bench player, and tanking teams won't see the point in investing into a 29 y/o player that's already flamed out.

    I actually think the minimum with a team like the Rockets could make sense, especially if we're bringing LLull over. We have an obvious need for playmakers to compliment Harden. I think Rodriguez could provide that.

    Exactly. Llull is for NBA and Rodriguez is perfect for Euroleague.

    Rodriguez? I donn't think he can play in NBA
