Donny, it’s like we never really knew you . . .

NBA: Playoffs-Denver Nuggets at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today Jeff Garcia reported that Spurs center Donatas Motiejunas has left the team.

The Lithuanian big man came to the Spurs in April to replace Pau Gasol who was waived by request to head to Milwaukee. Motiejunas played in three games averaging a bucket and a rebound in limited minutes.

Motiejunas also saw some minutes in the Game 4 loss to the Denver Nuggets during the first round of the playoffs while LaMarcus Aldridge watched from the bench.

Before the Spurs, Motiejunas was playing in China. But this was not his first NBA experience, he spent four seasons with the Houston Rockets and one with the New Orleans Pelicans before heading overseas.

It is uncertain where DM will land next, but one thing is for sure — having the Spurs on your resume for any amount of time looks good.

Best wishes, Donatas.
