    At least that's what it seems like they're reporting at this link? http://www.ondacero.es/programas/al...houston_20150604556f90950cf26215f52d70dc.html

    Here's the Google translation of the text describing this radio segment:

    Could any Spanish speakers listen to the audio and tell us the details of what was said in the interview? Would be much appreciated to hear what's being reported over there. Thanks!

    Would be good news. Llull would be a great addition for the Rockets.

    I'm sorry, but this doesn't really excite me. I get some people here are high on Llull but I'm not seeing it. He would be one of the best backup PG's in the league but I doubt he'd accept that role. His career averages of 9.4ppg, 3.3apg and 1.6rpg are underwhelming. Only averages 0.7 steals per game too. His shooting numbers are decent (44%fg, 35%3p) but I don't think he's going to move the needle much at all. I'm not being a dick just honest opinion. I am happy to be proven wrong. If you could find a way to convince him to play backup PG to Ty Lawson then we are talking.

    Ok... what's so great about this guy? What is he against Curry, Westbrook, Tony Parker, Lillard, Paul and the other elite point guards of the west???

    I read it in Spanish. It looks like legit reporting. We'll see if the smoke turns to fire or not in a few weeks.

    Edit: Also the pod says the offer from the Rockets is hard to decline, very interesting. They said about $18 million over 3 years. They said it looks like he is probably gone, but of course, they hedged a bit in case he changes his minds. But they think he is gone. They said Harden's asking for PG help and how good the Rockets are weight heavily upon his choice.
