The Rockets acquired 20-year old, 7′0″, 222 pound power forward Donatas Motiejunas who was playing in Italy, as part of the Jonny Flynn deal with the Timberwolves. Motiejunas was taken by the Timberwolves with the #20 overall pick. Motiejunas played in 46 games for two teams last year in Europe and he averaged 26.3 minutes, 12.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.6 steals per game. He has played in 148 games in four years in Europe and he averaged 23.7 minutes, 12.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game. If Motiejunas stays motivated (and I think Kevin McHale will be able to), then the Rockets will have a nice player.
