Report: Rockets prospect Sergio Llull signing contract extension with Real Madrid through 2021
The Rockets made a play to sign Sergio Llull, the No. 34 pick in the 2009 NBA draft.
But the Spanish point guard spurned Houston.
It might not be viable for Llull, 27, to join the NBA when his contract expires in six years. But with a lower buyout, I bet the Rockets keep pushing to bring him over sooner.
For now, they’re set with Patrick Beverley. He agreed to a four-year contract, and his defense-first, low-usage style meshes well with James Harden.
