Rockets Would Have To Promise Sergio Llull Significant Role To Bring Him To NBA

Oct 7, 2016 11:46 AM

The Houston Rockets remain interested in bringing Sergio Llull over to the NBA.

The Rockets own Llull's NBA draft rights.

Llull is a widely popular player for Real Madrid and signed an extension in 2015 for six seasons. Llull, however, does have a manageable buyout.

The belief is the Rockets would have to promise Llull a significant role with the team in order to get him to eventually leave Real Madrid.
