    Not exactly. That's how most spanish speakers pronounce it but the surname is catalan ( or balearic, not getting into debate over this xd), i don't think you use the exact sound in english.

    It's good decision. We can't improve PG through the draft, it's very unlikely to get major upgrade in PG via draft and Lull can contribute instantly. He's not an elite PG, but at least we will have some versality and depper rotation.

    I agree. Even if we draft a pg, he is gonna have to be really really good to break the rotation. We all know how McHale treats rookies...they only ever really get a chance if someone gets hurt.

    This is the Rockets we're talking about. There will be injuries. And BTW, even that doesn't guarantee squat with a young player. Canaan started in place of Bev when he was hurt and played decently in his absence....only to wind up with a bunch of DNP-CD's once Bev was healthy again.

    Good move......His game will translate well with THIS TEAM. He pushes the ball hard on the break. He will be able to get easy baskets for howard on pick and rolls. Most of all; cut the play making duties for Harden down.....he is someone that can get Harden easy buckets. This is a plus.....if you don't trust Morey by now....

    Let's not talk about Canaan....he's someone who was thoroughly outplayed by Ish Smith. He's not someone that we treated unfairly.

    It'll be interesting to actually compare the production of Lin and Llull.

    the full MLE for 3 years is less than $24M. does this mean we would operate under the cap to offer him more money? that would mean renouncing rights to josh and KJ?

    either way, this guy looks like a great fit for the team. match bev and brew, sign llull, trade (18, 32, papa, prigs, TJ) for faried. sign scola, terry, brooks, and prince to vet min deals. and start the season with:

    dwight-capela-dorsey
    faried-dmo-scola
    ariza-brewer-prince
    harden-terry-johnson
    bev-llull-brooks

    i can dream right?

    the best thing about Lull is his drive

    the guy is relentless, we def need someone like him within the team
