    Any one have any information about when we might see Sergio in a Rockets uniform? atleast for the summer league?

    I'm sure this has already been posted, but I ran across this video last night while trying to find information on this and really liked what I saw.

    http://www.nba.com/rockets/news/introducing_sergio_llull_shed_2010_01_21.html Rockets' VP of Basketball Operations Sam Hinkie breaks down film featuring Houston's second round selection Sergio Llull

    I could see the Rockets moving Lowry in the offseason if they are confident in what they see from Llull. Lowry is one of my favorite guys on this team, but he could definitely be a nice expendable trade piece if Llull is developing.

    Which is why I said I'm sure the vid had already been posted, I just thought I would post it with my questions. Thank you for pointing that out though.

    I like the guy, but I don't see how adding him will help this team. Maybe if we were to give up some of young core he would fit, but for right now a 7 footer is our only requisite. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even with all the trade talk I don't see any of the possible incoming players filling the void of Yao and Deke. We went from a very scary team to a team that scares its fans. Adding another quick small player to that doesn't seem to work...

    Well obviously we're not bringing him over this season and most likely not next, so the team he comes to may look dramatically different from the team we're seeing now. The only way I see him getting in the rotation though is if one of our PG's gets traded or injured. And if things go according to plan we'll get our 7 footer back next year.

    Very very true. But even though this kid has some skills, I still like Cbud a lot more. Maybe it's my Arizona bias, but Chase has a tenacity unmatched. I think Lull just would be a backup to Brooks and Lowry and really not see the light of day. He's good, but he's good at a position we are already pretty much covered on. Between Brooks, Lowry, Bud, and Temple (not to mention pushing down a Shane Battier or Trevor Ariza) we already have a pretty full house...

    Lull should actually make a roster at some point. Badiane was always called raw, but his athletic talents were inticing.

    Meh. Nothing to get excited over. He'll probably toil as a 12th man before heading back to Europe. The "Bad Man" is freaking terrible though.
