The Raptors went 2-1 in the round robin, securing a bye through this weird bracket style tournament’s first round and into today’s second round. They’ll square off with the Denver Nuggets and look to build on…I don’t know, whatever you build on with a team of four guys you care about and a bunch of also-rans. So far the story has been Jonas Valanciunas – he’s been excellent scoring the ball and rebounding but has been in foul trouble (pretend foul trouble since it takes 417 fouls to foul out of a summer league game) and has had some turnover trouble. Then again, he’s seeing a lot of doubles and way more touches than he’s used to, so the learning curve is an expected one.
