Houston Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas has been on the trading block for a week, and apparently, some teams are already engaging interest in the 2nd-year player out of Lithuania.

According to HoopsHype, the Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks have both spoken to the Rockets about possible deals.

“Virginijus Bulotas (Donatas Motiejunas’ agent): A few weeks ago, there were talks between Rockets and Celtics, but later everything stayed the same. Also the Mavericks showed some interest in Donatas, but it is a situation that Donatas can’t control.” 

D-Mo has appeared in just 1 game since the Rockets put him on the block, and has played in just 18 games this season.
