HoopsHype Alessandro Gentile rumors
Not present at Monday’s press conference was Houston’s third selection last week, Allesandro Gentile, who just wrapped up a season in which he earned Finals MVP honors after leading his club to the Italian League championship. Morey said it’s still to soon to say whether or not Gentile will be able to join the Rockets in time for the 2014-15 season. “He’s somebody who’s already so highly regarded in Europe and more ready to play. He’s somebody we’re in discussions about when and if he might come over. He’s somebody with a lot of pedigree even though he’s only 21 having won the championship just now and being the best player in the Italian League so that’s something that we have to continue to talk with his agent and with him about and see what the best plan is.” NBA.com
