Rockets First-Round Pick Not Leaving Team?

That is, he's not leaving his Polish team to come back to the Rockets? I know this crazy lockout seemed like it might stretch on forever, but really? He'd rather keep playing in Poland rather than join the Rockets?

I wonder if that's more an indictment on whether the Rockets will have playing time right away for the big man. In case you didn't notice, the front court is pretty loaded with players and that's before the Astros try and bring in Nene to play center.

Will it be a bad thing if Motiejunas doesn't join the team right away? Yes and no. I mean, it will definitely affect the time table of his progress and ability to contribute to the team, but if he's not ready now, he won't be ready with a few months of practice.

In fact, I wonder if he'd be a candidate to spend some time in the NBADL this season anyway. In that case, maybe staying in Poland is preferable?
