Michael Beasley is gone. Why, God, why?

It seems Donatas Motiejunas is not really in the Rockets’ plans anymore

I want to start this off by saying you won't find a bigger fan of Donatas Motiejunas then me. For Christmas this past year, my aunt bought me a Motiejunas pirate shirt (it came with an eye patch, very cool). My twitter profile picture for the longest was me interviewing the 7-footer. The idea of Motiejunas is great! The problem is the idea and the actual player is not the same...

Are the Rockets even planning on resigning Donatas Motiejunas?

All previous indications were that it was a matter of time, but now it seems like the team just isn't urgent to resign D-MO. Plus, how good can James Harden be in the pick and roll this year? (hint: very good) Well, the dark days of the NBA off season are almost over. Media day and training camp are right around the corner, and before we know it we'll all be too excited for preseason...

Grading The Deal: Pistons Acquire Donatas Motiejunas

Trading for Tobias Harris firmed up a weak spot in the starting lineup and added a scorer for the Detroit Pistons. Continuing their push for the playoffs, the Pistons added to a weak bench in trading for Donatas Motiejunas. Motiejunas essentially takes the place of Ersan Ilyasova as a power forward with range. He's not as good as Ilyasova, but a decent replacement, especially considering...

Just recently, Houston Rockets point-guard Patrick Beverley underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist which should keep him out of pretty much all basketball activity going forward. His recovery period is expected to be four months and with his free agency approaching, this injury diminishes his value for teams seeking his service. The Rockets will likely miss Beverley’s...
