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. Basketball Insiders

Sergio Rodríguez: Looking back, (the NBA experience) wasn't that bad. I played 300 games, I had a blast and lived a dream... and I ended up in New York – starting for the Knicks. When I decided to return to Europe, it was Real Madrid no less, which was a big deal to me. I was going to be able to play at the Euroleague, shoot for championships and deal with the extreme pressure that comes with having to win all the time. When I left the NBA, I felt kind of empowered by the fact that I was joining Real Madrid. HoopsHype
