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.
MRW: With Llull winning Euro is he more likely to jump to NBA this summer? David Pick: Here is what I’m told. Would Lull, a starting guard for the best team in Europe, 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 sub to James Harden or whatever PG the Rockets land next season? No, probably not. Are Rudy Fernandez and Sergio Rodriguez – both Spanish national team roommates and former NBAers – in Llull’s ear about the NBA being 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? No, probably not. The only way I see Llull going over is if he is paid a s***-load of money and gets starting PG. And he needs Pablo Prigioni out of there.
He knows how the semifinal in Madrid is shaping up. Both teams have former and future NBA players. Goudelock will find himself matched up against Rudy Fernandez and Sergio Llull. If the game is tight at the end, the ball is going to be in Goudelock’s hands. He will try to replace the mighty noise with a calming, intensifying silence. He will have to trust his instincts. He will need to believe in the teachings of Kobe. “The rules are different here, everything is so much different — the big games are almost like a stalemate where you’re beating each other up, so it comes down to who is executing down the stretch and hitting the big shots,” Goudelock says.

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.
His NBA rights, however, belong to the Houston Rockets, who have been trying for years to convince Llull to make the jump. And there is some fresh talk that next season — finally — Llull will give strong consideration to joining the Gasol brothers and the rest of the Spanish armada playing Stateside. One well-placed source told me in Spain: There’s a “pretty decent” chance Llull agrees to sample the NBA next season.
