Machado, Motiejunas, White to D-League
The Rockets have sent Royce White, Donatas Motiejunas and Scott Machado to the NBA D-League.
The Rio Grande Valley Vipers just got some talent on their roster. White's anxiety issues were a main story in the preseason and perhaps the Rockets felt it was best to get him get him regular playing time. This move is somewhat surprising, so stay tuned for more confirmation from the team. Nov. 13 - 12:04 am et

Someone brought this up in another thread, but I thought this deserved its own thread. I can't say I'm surprised by Machado and White, but I thought Motiejunas would get a chance to get some minutes in the NBA earlier. Given the success of Morris and Smith off the bench, that's really hurt Jones and D'Mo's playing time.
What does everyone think? Is this is a good move or will they be calling up some of these guys sooner rather than later?
