Having had no issues on buyout or FIBA clearance, Rockets expect to sign 2011 draft pick Donatas Motiejunas in next day or two, source said.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) July 6, 2012
The Lithuanian was the No. 20 overall pick by Minnesota last season, but was traded to Houston. He opted to sign a one-year deal in the Polish league while the NBA dealt with a labor dispute.
"I was trying to improve every day something," Motiejunas said in a telephone interview on Thursday from Poland, a day after he helped Asseco Prokom to a Game 7 victory for the Polish league title. "I want to be a perfect player. That's a lot of work and a lot of effort, but we will see. Hopefully I will be one of the best players."
