According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets are hoping they can re-sign Motiejunas.
With Motiejunas basically ready to be traded out of town last season, this comes as a surprise. His back injury was a huge issue last season and kept him from playing for a large part of the season. With the news that his back is still not 100%, it seems a bit risky. However, for the right price both sides might be able to figure something out. Look for the new free agent signing Ryan Anderson to pick up most of the playing time and fantasy value in that Rockets front court.
