Sources: Motiejunas Will Not Report to Rockets

Restricted free agent Donatas Motiejunas won’t report to the Houston Rockets because of a difference of nearly $6 million from the offer sheet he signed with the Brooklyn Nets, sources told ESPN on Wednesday. Last week, Motiejunas signed a four-year, $37 million offer sheet with the Nets.

After the Rockets matched the offer sheet, Motiejunas had two days to report for his physical, which his agent B.J. Armstrong told the team he would not do. Houston’s options are to keep their first-refusal exercise notice open and wait for Motiejunas to report. If he doesn’t report, Houston can pull the offer Thursday and Motiejunas would become a restricted free agent. If they don’t pull the offer, it would expire automatically March 1.

With the Cavaliers’ franchise-record-tying 13-game winning streak ending with a 106-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, the biggest disappointment in Cleveland’s postgame locker room stemmed from news that weather issues would delay the team flight home, not the defeat.

If anything, the loss provided Cleveland a chance to reflect on the team it has become in the last 3 ½ weeks, going from a 5-7 record to holding the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
