Details On Why NBA Rescinded 3-Team Trade

Donatas Motiejunas

The Detroit Pistons completed a three team trade which they received Marcus Thornton and  Donatas Motiejunas from the Houston Rockets for a first round pick and they also sent Joel Anthony to the Philadelphia 76ers in the trade. Reports that came out that the deal could be in danger if Motiejunas couldn’t pass a physical due to his back issues. The Pistons announced today they rescinded the trade:

This comes out as Motiejunas told Jonathan Feigen writer for the Houston Chronicle that he was 100 percent to go and was ready to help the Pistons make the playoffs:

Motiejunas has been struggling to get minutes with the Rockets, as he been battling recovering from a herniated disk in his back, he underwent surgery in April but still hasn’t been able to get a consistent role with the Rockets. This deal falling apart is bad for both teams as the Pistons loaded up on veteran presence to make a strong playoff run. At least they still received Tobias Harris, as he makes his first start tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers:

The Rockets on the other hand gets back an injured Motiejunas and loses out on a first round pick.
