    I wonder if Houston is telling him Scola will be here next year to help him adjust to the NBA and the city/country...

    Amazing if it happened but would Llull be happy playing as a backup even with a solid 20 minutes or so?

    Lawson(36)/Llull(18)
    Harden(36)/Terry
    Ariza(36)/Brewer(18)
    Dmo(24)/Smith(24)
    Howard(36)/Capela(12)

    Throw in a few minutes for Terry as well....

    Llull, Brewer, and Smith off the bench would be a blur:eek:

    He's on the final year of his contract, but yeah, I've probably underpriced him.

    And yet trading for Lawson might keep Llull from comng over.

    Lull is the type of talent where the NBA is going to have to adjust to him, not the other way around. Throw all that euro stereotype crap in the junk can when talking about Llull.
    He. is. the. real. deal.

    Lull will take over games at ease a la Ginobli, watch.
    If Morey can get Lawson or Lowry with Lull as a 6th man....dayum.

    I'm really excited about this guy. Really hope the rumors are true. If he commits this early I don't see how we wouldn't bring back the whole squad. I don't like Bev as a starter but as 25 minute defensive spark off the bench he would be perfect.

    Bro. We haven't even seen the guy play in the NBA yet!! You don't trade one of the best players in a country before seeing if he could be a gem

    A lot of people who have probably seen very little Llull giving very negative takes in this thread. If he was as bad as some of you are making him out to be then the Rockets wouldn't be so interested.

    Obviously watching a highlight reel doesn't mean a player will turn out great but just look at this guy.. he is a perfect fit for this system. Him and Beverley would be amazing

    So, if we sign Llull, the roster looks like this:

    P.G. - Llull / Prigioni / Johnson
    S.G. - Harden / Papanikolaou
    S.F. - Ariza /
    P.F. - Motiejunas / Jones
    ..C. - Howard / Capela / Dorsey

    FA's:

    P.G. - Beverley / Terry
    S.G. - Brewer
    S.F. - McDaniels
    P.F. - Smith
    ..C. -

    Picks:

    18th
    32nd

    That makes 18 players if all are somehow retained / drafted and 5 Point Guards..... Morey has his work cut out for him! There ought to be some fireworks very soon.
