I admit I didn´t really know much about Donatas Motiejunas two weeks ago. Hell, nobdy knew much about him except his mother and the 3 members of his fan club but I read up on him and now I know lots of stuff! For starters, he´s just 22 years old and was born in Lithuania. He´s also really, really tall. Like 7´0 tall! That´s pretty damn tall! He´s also Houston´s new starting power forward so he should be grabbed in all 12 team leagues right now. What I think he can give you is very European of him. Over his last 2 games he´s averaged 24.5 mpg/12 ppg/6.5 rpg/3 3pa/1.5 3pm/0 blocks and .5 spg. Small sample I know. It´s only two games! But you can clearly see Donatas can get you low double digit points, 6-7 rpg and possibly 2 3pm per. That´s some useful stuff! As for Thomas Robinson, if you´re holding him you have to make the move for Donatas. Short term it´s the only right thing to do. Long term (in a month?) you may be reading right here to go the other way but we´ll worry about that ...
