There’s a decent chance Gentile, whose NBA rights are held by Houston, will be in the league next season, because the Rockets hope to bring him over for the 2016-17 campaign. Yet in this instance, Bender’s length and foot speed completely snuffed Gentile out of the game. Gentile backed off, unsure how to counter Bender’s length. The kid has a L-O-N-G way to go, with his physical development as well as a long-range game he’s still smoothing out, but we have to ask: How many 7-footers from Europe have sent a gaggle of NBA scouts home talking about his perimeter D?
Storyline: Alessandro Gentile to the NBA?
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.
