As Eurohoops reported Houston is waiting Llull with open arms and a three year contract. The player according to Eurohoops sources is near his final decision. With Real winning the championship title in Spain, the best season during the last 41 of the club’s glorious history will be completed. The “Whites” are on the verge of winning four trophies on the same season, counting also the Euroleague, the Spanish Copa Del Rey and the Spanish Supercopa. Llull has nothing else to prove and the next big challenge for him will be Houston, where he can evolve even to the starting point guard, since on the roster at the moment only veteran Pablo Prigioni is left and nobody knows what will be the future of Pat Beverley.

“I jump on the court and try to compete,” said Prigioni, whose 38th birthday coincided with the Rockets’ 113-100 victory against the Clippers. “I’m a very unselfish guy and I’m not thinking to score or take shots. I can do a lot of things on the court. … I try to do everything I can to help the team win.” For the Rockets to take Game 7 and steal the series from the Clippers, they needed 31 points from James Harden, 16 points and 15 rebounds from Dwight Howard, and 37 combined points from Josh Smith and Trevor Ariza. They also needed Prigioni, who captured the resiliency and intensity of a squad that refused to cave when nearly every single fan, critic and supporter let go of 2014-15 near the end of the third quarter of Game 6. “Those plays that Pablo made … turn the events of a game and helped us prevail,” said Harden, whose face became animated when Prigioni’s name was mentioned.

Prigioni said he may look to play one more pro season, but admitted it likely will be back in Spain. Then it’s onto coaching. He feels the triangle principles he absorbed were enlightening. “It was a great experience, something I never played, and it was good because I want to try to coach,’’ Prigioni said. “I think I have it in my blood. Phil just started the job. To build a championship team, you can’t do it one year.’’

Prigioni has one year left on his pact, but only $300,000 of his $1.7 million is guaranteed. “No, no, no,’’ Prigioni, who missed his second straight game with a hip injury on Friday, said when asked if he was intrigued about playing in a new American city. “I’m just focused here. “No reason to think about it, it’s directly out of our hands. I focus on the next practice, supporting the guys, keep moving on. Just focusing on the team and give my best. In the summer we will see. Now just focusing on our team.”

Pablo Prigioni was a late scratch Tuesday night, with the Knicks announcing a sudden hip injury 20 minutes before tipoff of their game with the Celtics. The team had not disclosed the injury during Derek Fisher’s pregame press conference, leading to speculation the club didn’t want to risk injuring Prigioni any further because it is trying to trade him. Prigioni sat on the bench in a suit as the Knicks lost, 108-97. According to a league source, Prigioni is on the trade block with the Feb. 19 deadline approaching.
