Donatas Motiejunas: Drawing interest from Nets

Motiejunas went through a physical with the Nets on Thursday and could be nearing an agreement on an offer sheet with the team, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Motiejunas remains a restricted free agent of the Rockets, a team he's been negotiating with since the offseason on a new deal. However, the two sides haven't been able to come to terms, largely because of concerns surrounding Motiejunas' recurring back issues and other teams' lack of cap space, but the Nets could finally force the Rockets' hand. If Motiejunas ultimately does sign an offer sheet with the Nets, the Rockets would have three days to match the terms of the contract. Motiejunas' fantasy value would undoubtedly be higher if he were to land with the Nets rather than returning to the Rockets, as Brooklyn's lack of frontcourt depth would open up more consistent minutes for him.
