Motiejunas rules out return to Pelicans

Big man Donatas Motiejunas is again in search of his next team.

Donatas Motiejunas will be a free agent this summer and has ruled out a return to the New Orleans Pelicans, he told a Lithuanian basketball reporter Monday.

Motiejunas arrived in New Orleans early in the season after a lengthy and often contentious holdout with the Houston Rockets.

The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs are among the teams Motiejunas would reportedly consider, although the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics could get in the mix if he truly is willing to take a one-year contract.
