Free agent Donatas Motiejunas is headed to the Shandong Golden Stars on a deal worth $3 million according to a report from Lithuanian basketball site 15min.lt, via Sportando.
Motiejunas’ NBA market was nonexistent this summer after he had been courted by the Nets, Pistons and Rockets this time a year ago. He ended up spending some time with the Pelicans but will now collect a nice check overseas. Motiejunas might be at the end of the line as far as the NBA goes, but it’s possible he makes a comeback with a strong showing this year.
