    I hope they aren't sending Harden to recruit him.

    He already got on the wrong plane when trying to go to Ibiza to meet with Llull, and ended up on a mission with Ethan Hunt.

    The article has the terms.

    The succulent nature of the offer, guaranteed in its first year and over two million dollars -the minimum salary is 2.4-, they trust that the player will continue in the squad and fulfill his contract with the white team, which runs until June 30, 2019.

    Why do they call themselves the "white" team.

    No media conspiracy in Spain.

    The Real Madrid ... may find inconvenient a proposal from the NBA. The Houston Rockets, one of the most powerful franchises in the North American Championship, has made an offer to take over the services of Jeffery Taylor.

    Just realized ... we are confirmed to get him, because his name is ripe for misspellings. No way even 1/2 the board gets the Jeffery spelling correct.

    Meh. Couldn’t cut it with the hornets/bobcats. Has pleaded guilty to a domestic charge. Enough for me to not get excited.

    What’s Melo up to these days?

    The Rockets want to fish in Madrid: offer to Jeff Taylor

    The Houston Rockets want to take Jeffery Taylor back to the NBA . As published by OK Diario , the Texas franchise would have submitted an offer to the forward for one season and two million dollars guaranteed . The Swede has a contract until the summer of 2019 with a Real Madrid that has been informed at all times of the interest of the Rockets and two other teams of the North American League.

    If finally signed by the Rockets, Taylor would fulfill his second stage in the best league in the world. Drafted in the second round ( pick 31) by the Charlotte Hornets (Bobcats at that time), the forward of 29 years played three seasons in North Carolina before making the jump to Spain with Real Madrid.

    The characteristics of the Swede fit in perfectly with Mike D'Antoni's Rockets project: shooters (averaging 44% and 36% from triple in ACB and Euroleague, respectively) and good supporters to support James Harden and Chris Paul. Houston has lost two of its bastions of this style this summer: Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute .

    His performance in the white set has been irregular. Away from the big statistical figures (5.8 points in Liga Endesa and 5 in Euroleague), Taylor has been fundamental within the scheme of Pablo Laso thanks to his great defensive contribution. His departure would lead to the opening of a template that seemed closed with the departure of Luka Doncic to the NBA, the arrivals of the Slovenian Prepelic and the Argentine Deck ( not yet official ) and still to know what will happen to Anthony Randolph.

    The Real Madrid has closed its squad ahead of next season in the absence of what might happen with Anthony Randolph, but may find inconvenient as a proposal from the NBA. Houston Rockets, one of the most powerful franchises in the North American Championship, has made an offer to take over the services of Jeffery Taylor , one of the essentials in Pablo Laso's systems.

    In Real Madrid, despite the succulent nature of the offer , guaranteed in its first year and over two million dollars -the minimum salary is 2.4-, they trust that the player will continue in the squad and fulfill his contract with the white team, which runs until June 30, 2019. Since the club have been informed at all times of interest by the Rockets and other two franchises of the NBA, something that generates confidence thinking about the final formation Of the template.

    Taylor has a past in the NBA and although his return to the best league in the world seemed far behind his first year, the performance of the Swede in the following two has caught the attention of the scouts of the North American championship, especially that of the Rockets. In any case, Jeff is very comfortable in the capital and is aware that his role will be greater in Madrid than in Houston.


    The Rockets are a franchise with a game similar in style to Real Madrid and this makes Taylor fit very well in a team like Houston. With a three-point shot very worked and able to play without the ball, Taylor has achieved a major improvement which adds its defense , one of the best in Europe and perfectly adaptable to a franchise in which Chris Paul and James Harden need squires versatile at the time of fajar back.

    The Llull case, precedent

    It is not the first time that Houston Rockets looks at a Real Madrid player. The Tejano franchise has already set its sights on Sergio Llull , current star of the Madrid squad and who closed the option to play in the NBA after the fervent interest of the whole Western conference. The General Manager of the Rockets, Darryl Morey, said he was hallucinating at the time with the offers rejected by '23' to continue in the white team and in Madrid they hope that history will repeat itself with Taylor.

    He's a great defender at the NBA level. And he can shoot, handle, and finish. He'd be a steal on a minimum deal.

    Maybe they are trying to destroy llulls team with donic gone, and we sign Taylor. It even says Randolph might leave.

    Maybe he’ll realize his Team sucks and finally come over

    If he is Matt Barnes as a Comparison, Toughness as a Small Forward, Knockdown 3 point shooter. He would be good for depth and Injury Insurance.

    Boy talk about leaving no stone unturned.

    We're clearly shopping in the clearance section at this point.
