    Everyone loves a guy who plays hard.
    If you have a presence, and an energy to really force or fuel your teammates to play better, harder on the defensive end, you've got the attributes of a defensive anchor.

    Valanciunas definitely has the ability and will have the ability to be a defensive anchor.

    The dude is automatic from 18 ft and in
    He shoots 44.4% from 10 to 15 feet, and 41.0% from 16 to 23 feet, far from automatic.

    http://www.hoopdata.com/player.aspx?...%20Valanciunas

    DeRozan shoots 36.0% (10-15) and 41.0% (16-23), Gay 45.1% and 41.1% (Memphis data only). Keep in mind a higher proportion of DeRozan's and Gay's shots are contested.

    It will be interesting to see if he can continue to raise these (open shot) percentages and force the defense to guard him more closely. The Raptor wings could certainly benefit from better spacing.

    Using Hoopsdata.com he is 17th in 10-15 feet and 11th in 16-23 feet among 36 eligible players (C's only, 20+ mins per game).

    He is just 20, I feel good about his prospects but he is not automatic now.

    **Off Topic**

    I found Drummond's stats interesting: 71% at rim, 18% 3-9ft, 0% 10-15ft.

    Yet he's 50% from the 3 point line

    Having said that, 73% of his shot attempts are either dunks or layups.
