AS Monaco's Donatas Motiejunas remembered the same kind of situation, which happened to him as well. He had some words to say on Twitter regarding NBA doctors, ruining the trades by failing the player's physical tests.

"I was failed on physicals and told by Detroit doctors I will not play basketball again… 6 years later, I am still here and have many years to go. They destroying young players' names and futures in NBA by doing this."

During his fourth year with the Houston Rockets in the NBA, on February 18, 2016, Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton were traded to the Detroit Pistons in a three-team trade, involving the Rockets and the Philadelphia 76ers.

However, four days later, the Pistons rescinded their trade following a failed physical by Motiejunas, who had some back problems in earlier years.

Later, his NBA career shifted to New Orleans Pelicans and San Antonio Spurs.

The 2.13-meter Lithuanian center had the most successful NBA campaign in 2014-15, averaging 12 points and 5,9 rebounds per game for the Rockets.

Before returning to Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, the 31-year-old spent four years in China. The previous season he posted 21.6 points and 13.7 rebounds per game for Xinjiang Flying Tigers.
