Moteijunas

I can't think of any star player who's built like Kelly Olynyk. He lacks lower body strength and he has short arms. There have been plenty of 6'10"+ white guys who could take over offensively and thread great passes, but how many of these dudes suffered from top-heaviness and T-Rex arms? Olynyk has a lot of potential, but it's tough for me to envision the finished product.

Maybe I'm short on imagination. In the meantime, how about this?

Bass, Faverani and Olynyk to Houston for Asik and Moteijunas.

  • Mr. Bass is of little use to me. I recently posted that I admire his work ethic, but there's nowhere else for him to go here. Lost his job to Sullinger, who I hope we keep for a long, long time.
  • Faverani isn't getting any minutes, but I'd think he'd be fine covering for Howard here and there. Since Asik's been sat on the bench, Houston has had no backup center.
  • If Olynyk can't reach his potential alongside Howard, he can't do so anywhere. At least not anywhere in the States. They could end up complementing each other very well.
For the Celts, we get our man in the middle, Omer Asik, and Moteijunas, a skilled 7-footer with as much potential as Olynyk but fewer physical idiosyncrasies. In other words, the guy looks more like an NBA 4/5. He's capable of playing inside, getting boards. A big man rotation of Sullinger, Asik and Moteijunas could really be something by this time next year.
