The Los Lakers worked out free agent Donatas Motiejunas according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne. This workout comes as a result of the Larry Nance Jr.injury who is expected to miss four weeks with a bone bruise in his knee.
Motiejunas has been in the news because of his restricted free agency debacle where he and Houston couldn’t agree on a deal, then the Nets made an offer that Houston matched, but Motiejunas and Houston still couldn’t come to an agreement. The main concerns regarding D-Mo has been the health of his back, an issue that nixed a trade to Detroit last season. When on the court, he produces both points and rebounds.
One small concern would be finding minutes for him once Nance comes back from injury, but that’s an issue for the Lakers to address when the time comes. DMo can help the Lakers right now and it could be a great signing for the team.
