Donatas Motiejunas Expected To Sign With Rockets, According To Report

Along with the bevy of 2012 draft picks, the Rockets will soon be bringing in 2011 acquisition Donatas Motiejunas, according to Jonathan Feigen.

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.

Having missed out on Magic center Dwight Howard, the Rockets will be filling the open spot down low with Motiejunas. He spoke with the Houston Chronicle last month.

"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."
