After having watched a few games of his (mainly out of boredom before going to work, I admit) the thing I've noticed is how well he handles the ball for a guy his height, especially on the move. If he learned a good ball fake, and had a bit more confidence in himself, he could really score well in the NBA. Needs to get bigger, though.
Insights from Rockets fans, will sum up everything for you.
I'd be all over giving Motiejunas a shot.
He could be included into Bargnani trade, Houston desperately needs legit PF. But what else Raptors could demand from that roster or picks they have, I got no idea.
Found this interesting interview randomguy would you be able to enlighten us.
I wrote you before:
"He refused to play with his national team in order to play at summer league with Rockets, well they turned their backs to him for such dedication. "
Concerning summer of 2011, he was cut because coach relied on veterans, experienced players and this position is almost always stacked in our NT, most important basketball event was organized in Lithuania, hoops crazy country, so it was a big deal, coach made that decision, in addition he made huge improvement after being cut during that summer.
The 2 years ago NT I am not sure. But I do know from watching JV this last summer, Lithuanian National Senior team is not easy on the young players. This past year was his choice. He probably would not have played but he wanted to further his NBA career. Personally, I love that. I understand the commitment to your country's program but I am a selfish Raptor fan. I'd love to see guys commit over the summer like that.
GUys draft stock drop all the time. Kawhi Leonard also dropped in 2011. GM's make mistakes with the best of them. I believe there was a similar issue with DM as JV with he would not come over right away.
He tore up Summer League. He showed promise in preseason. He has tore up D-League. Basically he has shown the adjustment to the NBA game is not a concern. Now adjusting to the talent may be.
His problem in Houston is they need a backup C and he is a PF despite being 7ft. Sounds like a familiar refrain for Toronto but he appears to have a bit of an edge and actually rebounds so that is unfamiliar territory for Toronto.
If the Raps are looking for a stretch 4, I'd love him.
I agree with one point. That his dominating the D League. He really shouldn't be there.
