With camp just a few weeks away, (Daryl) Morey and Rockets coach Kevin McHale both said they have been pleased to see what (Donatas) Motiejunas has done for Lithuania.

McHale said that one of the things he wants to see next year is tougher defensive play at the power forward position.

“(Motiejunas) knows what he has to do if he wants to play,” McHale said. “I told him you gotta rebound at a high level and you have to defend with some physicality.”
