NBPA considers filing a grievance over the failed Donatas Motiejunas trade

Like, really, though. How is his back good enough to play for the Rockets but not the Pistons?

The National Basketball Players Association is reportedly "strongly" considering filing a grievance with its long time rival, the NBA, according to Yahoo Sports.

The Pistons picked up Motiejunas and guard Marcus Thornton in exchange for a first-round pick and center Joel Anthony. The Pistons quickly voided the three-player trade with the Rockets on Feb. 22 after Motiejunas failed several medical examinations on his back.

Motiejunas had back surgery late last season.
