Good news - coach have announced final roster, and JV is in it.
Pretty sure JV will not be main center and he will not play much minutes. But it is not because he is bad, but because he is young and not ready. You would not expect him being starting center in Raptors this year right ? And Lithuania team is prolly better than Raptors, that's questionable though
Eurobasket will start August 31th. Official page http://www.eurobasket2011.com/en/default.asp
All stats should be right and posted ASAP, so we don't need to link his every game.
Some more info on Lithuania roster.
Two main centers:
Number 15 Robertas Javtokas
Number 14 Marijonas Petravicius
Number 17 Jonas Valanciunas
Number 5 Mantas Kalnietis, young and fast.
Number 13 Sarunas Jasikevicius, old and slow , but smart and great.
Number 13 PG is great on pick and roll and does great assists in general. JV and him combo works really well.
JV will get minutes against weaker teams and pretty sure coach will let him play in tough games, where he will need to add his bump energy in offence. Or maybe he will get his chance to crush Gasols or Kirilenka
If Italy makes it to the next round, Lithuania will face them with Bargnani
Three teams are advancing from every group.
Predictions for Italy group is Serbia and France (has 7? NBA players) will advance easy, while Germany (with Nowitzki) and Italy (with Bargnani) will fight for the last spot.
Lithuania should advance easy enough (Spain and Turkey are strong in their group, others are easy shot).
