In a surprising turn, the Rockets and Motiejunas’ agent, B.J. Armstrong, can’t agree on the terms of a new contract. As a restricted free agent, Motiejunas was offered a $4.4 million qualifying offer for the 2016-17 season. Any team could have offered a contract to Motiejunas, which the Rockets could have matched.

It hasn’t happened, and since just three NBA teams have cap space, it appears doubtful a team will try to sign Motiejunas with the regular season roughly two weeks away. On Oct. 1, the qualifying offer expired, so now the Rockets can offer Motiejunas the same amount of money in a one-year deal or just wait.
