Re: Sergio Llull whose NBA rights are held by the Houston Rockets – Here is what I’m told. Would Lull, a starting guard for one of the best teams overseas, take a back seat to play in the NBA? Maybe, but probably not. Would he risk 25+ minutes per game in Europe to become a backup to James Harden or whatever PG the Rockets land next season? No, probably not. Are Rudy Fernandez and Sergio Rodriguez – both former NBAers – in Llull’s ear that the NBA is a waste of time? Yea, for sure. Are the Rockets seriously considering bringing over BOTH Llull and Italian scorer Alessandro Gentile while Kostas Papanikolaou isn’t even playing in the playoffs (and 3 minutes in 5 games isn’t really playing)? No, probably not.
Olimpia Milano captain Alessandro Gentile said he will decide his future after the season. The Houston Rockets want to bring him to the NBA from next season. Gentile was selected by the Rockets in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft. “I will decide after the Serie A playoffs whether to go to the NBA from next season or not. It looks like everyone has decided for me. But I am the only one to decide. I am very pleased that the Rockets are so interested in me. They treat me like a player that will go playing with them.

Alessandro Gentile headed to the Houston Rockets? Not so fast

“The fifth Italian in the NBA is going to be Alessandro Gentile. He will move to the Rockets this summer” said Hackett. Alessandro Gentile signed a contract extension with EA7 last summer and he was supposed to remain in Europe for two more years before moving overseas. But his plans seem different now and he is ready to join the Rockets in 2015.

Alessandro Gentile talked with La Gazzetta dello Sport also about his future. Gentile has a contract beyond this season with Olimpia Milano with whom he has won the Serie A Championship last June as captain. Alessandro Gentile was selected by the Houston Rockets in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft and he did not rule out jumping overseas very soon. “The Rockets make me feel like one of their family even if I never went to Houston yet. They came to Europe very often to watch me and the contacts are frequent. The NBA is a challenge that fascinates me more and more and could come vert soon. But now I am just focused on winning a back-to-back title with Olimpia Milano. But the final results of this season won’t affect my future decisions” said Gentile.
Olimpia Milano captain Alessandro Gentile will meet on Sunday with Cavaliers and Hawks officials who are in Milan for the Euroleague Final Four. The Italian rising start will be in the next NBA draft and could be selected late in the second round. Gentile averaged 11.4 points per game in Euroleague with 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists and is scoring 11 points per game in Serie A.
