Despite some reports regarding a “verbal agreement” between Zalgiris Kaunas and Donatas Motiejunas, China seems his most likely destination right now.

By Stavros Barbarousis/

Donatas Motiejunas is currently in Lithuania to prepare for the upcoming EuroBasket tournament together with his teammates in the Lithuanian team.

While there are many European clubs, including Zalgiris Kaunas, that would like to see him in their roster, the best offer that the Lithuanian forward/center has in his hands comes from China, as Eurohoops has learned.

In fact, there’s a $1.5M bid for Motiejunas that might lure him to join the Chinese League as many other players who either came from EuroLeague or were targeted by EL clubs (Keith Langford, Giannis Bourousis, Justin Hamilton, Aaron Jackson, Edwin Jackson) have done this summer.

No European team, thus far, has made an offer that is even close to the above sum. This is why, at the moment, China is the best option, from an economical viewpoint, for the former player of Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans.
