Sergio Llull RumorsAll NBA Players
Another name will have to be removed from the list of free agents this summer in EuroLeague, as Sergio Llull has, according to Carlos Sanchez Blas, extended his contract with Real Madrid for another season. According to the same report, the two sides agreed on the deal a long time ago and Llull will enter his 15th season with the White as the team captain.
Stefan Bondy: Reached out to Sergio Llull’s camp to see if a trade to Knicks might lure him out of Europe. The answer was Llull isn’t planning on making a statement on this subject. ….So I guess he didn’t say no.
One of the changes that are potentially coming to the squad is Facundo Campazzo leaving for the NBA, however, Llull noted that Facu is still his teammate and has been leaving all he’s got on the court. “Campazzo is still a Real Madrid player and I see him every day at practices and games and he is so committed to the team. He has not changed at all and gives his one hundred percent in every game and everybody can see it. That is what I can say about Facundo Campazzo.”
Speaking of Maccabi, their prospect in Deni Avdija will be up for grabs at the 2020 NBA Draft and is expected to be a lottery pick, as high as No.2. Llull, who never opted to join an NBA team despite lots of interest, especially by the Houston Rockets, praised Avdija and wished him all the best wherever he lands. “He is a great player, very big but skillful and able to do things which are not intended to be done by the guys of his size such as dribbling, passing… I wish him all the best wherever he plays,” Llull said.
Sergio Llull stated that he wants to continue with Real Madrid after his current contract expires next summer, occupying whatever position it may be, at a press conference Friday, as adapted by Arancha Rodriguez. “My intention is to continue, in whatever position they want. I am very calm, there is no rush. I am focused on having a good season and continue helping to win titles,” said Llull.
