The Houston Rockets made an impressive run to the Western Conference Finals last season, but are already looking at upgrading the roster for the upcoming ’15/’16 season. James Harden has requested help at point guard, and with Patrick Beverley unlikely to return, an upgrade seems inevitable. There are multiple reports of Sergio Llull being offered $24 million over three years by the Rockets. It remains to be seen whether the Spanish guard will come over.
Houston Rockets have offered Sergio Llull $23.8 million for the next three seasons. Llull has a $5.6 million buyout clause. (@hoopshype)—

In the event that Llull stays in the Euroleague, Greivis Vasquez could be an option for the Rockets, who have expressed considerable interest in the Raptors back up guard. Vasquez, who is owed $6.6 million next year, would be an exceptional fit at Houston. A package of Terrence Jones and Kostas Papanikolaou could be enough to tempt the Raptors into offloading him this offseason.
The Houston front office is also interested in UFA Thaddeus Young, who opted out of his contract with the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. Young could be a potential option to strengthen the bench in the event that Llull does not sign with the Rockets.
