Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said last week that the team has remained in contact with guard Sergio Llull, the most prized of the international prospects whose rights the Rockets control, but that Sergio Llull is also expected to remain with his current team. Houston Chronicle

As for where he stands with the Spurs, Bertans expects he’ll be making the leap to the NBA sometime in the next two seasons. “I think they count on me as a player in the next two years.” Bertans said the Spurs were supportive of him signing with Baskonia because they’ve had a respectable relationship with the club before, when Tiago Splitter played there, while they’re also monitoring 2011 draftee Adam Hanga currently in Baskonia. Bertans also stated that his contract with Baskonia has an NBA-opt out after each season. ProjectSpurs.com

After a two days negotiation, Kostas Papanikolaou decided not to accept the offer of Houston Rockets and he will not make the jump from Barcelona to the NBA. As he recently said to Eurohoops, he was willing to make a financial sacrifice, however the offer of the Rockets just wasn’t enough. The NBA team informed the representatives of the player that the four million US dollars for next two seasons was the best deal they could offer and under those conditions, Papanikolaou will remain in Europe.
