Analysis: The free-agent 7-footer reportedly will be paid a pro-rated veteran minimum worth about $600,000. He could soon see significant minutes considering the Pelicans are a bit weak at center with Dante Cunningham and Omer Asik. Motiejunas has played four seasons in the NBA with Houston, averaging 7.8 points and four rebounds.

Analysis: The move comes two weeks after Motiejunas signed a four-year, $27 million offer sheet with the Nets as a restricted free agent. Houston matched the offer but the Lithuanian in turn skipped his physical to finalize the deal. The Rockets also had an agreement to trade Motiejunas, who averaged 7.8 points over four seasons with the team, to Detroit last February. However, that deal fell apart when he failed his physical due to a back injury.
