Potential Landing Spots for Houston Rockets Big Man Donatas Motiejunas
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Houston Rockets sophomore big man Donatas Motiejunas, who has played just 8.4 minutes per game in 17 appearances for Houston this season, has reportedly been put on the trade block.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports via Twitter, the Rockets have been calling teams around the league in an attempt to trade the disgruntled 7-footer.

Motiejunas has been buried on the Rockets depth chart this season behind Terrence Jones and Omri Casspi. The 23-year-old Lithuanian showed promise during his rookie campaign in 2012-13—even starting 14 games—but he's fallen out of favor in head coach Kevin McHale's playing rotation.

The Rockets are reportedly trying to move him so he gets an opportunity for more playing time, and there are sure to be suitors looking to add the young talent.

As Houston aims to move forward with Dwight Howard solidifying the interior, another NBA team may swoop in to acquire Motiejunas.

 

Note: Although the potential landing spots are numbered for your convenience, they aren't listed in order of likelihood.
