NBA NEWS-Donatas Motiejunas remains stuck in restricted agency with the Houston Rockets.
The Rockets made a $3.4 million qualifying provide to Motiejunas this summer that he might not accept.
“They haven’t made us a serious offer,” Motiejunas’ agent, BJ Armstrong, told ESPN on Wednesday. “Our moment of truth will be Oct. 1. We’ll make a decision on that day.”
Motiejunas, who started in twenty two of thirty seven total games last season, has met with new coach Mike D’Antoni and was told he would have a big role with the team.
The Rockets listed Motiejunas to the Pistons at the deadline but the deal was vetoed thanks to Detroit’s considerations regarding his back.
“There’s only so much we can do based on the current CBA,” Armstrong said. “I’m not annoyed — this can be what it’s. We’ll know where the Rockets stand by [Oct. 1]. All deals get done in the 11th hour.”
