Houston Rockets looking to trade Donatas Motiejunas

Donatas Motiejunas, who has seen very limited playing time this season, could be traded. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the Houston Rockets are calling teams around the league looking to move the young power forward to a better situation.

It sounds like Motiejunas has handed it some kind of a trade request, which seems to be a regular thing among the Rockets this season. Omer Asik is also available, although Houston seems to be asking for too much for the center.

After starting in 14 games last season, D-Mo has only appeared in 17 games this year and is playing just 8.4 minutes per game. Last season he showed some upside, but has ultimately fallen victim to the development of Terrence Jones and the arrival of Dwight Howard.

The Rockets probably won’t get a ton back for Motiejunas, but he could develop into a solid player. He runs the floor well, could potentially develop some range and is a relatively polished offensive player, although he is still a defensive liability.
