    Nope, rumour is though most likely he will be with the team next season.

    Big game tonight, Lithuania vs. Puerto Rico. European precision versus latino passion. JV against Ramos and Santiago. They'll probably give Jonas his space on account of his being a lottery pick (not!). The crowd will likely be hostile in light of what transpired leading to Venezuela's exit from the tournament.

    We'll get to see how JV manages against a Howard/Shaq-esque type body in Ramos.

    I couldn't find an English feed. Tight game, 40-38 for Lithuania at the half. JV had 3 fouls in about 5 minutes and then he sat.

    I didn't see JV having this much trouble earlier in the year. Is there something different about how the fouls are being called at this level of competition? wonder if he can adjust and wonder how the foul calling is at this tournament as compared to the NBA?

    Lithuania wins but both Val and Kleiza were non factors. :/

    The top scorer (tied with one other) for the winning team wasn't a factor?

    The officiating was a combination of bizarre calls and non calls. The play that determined the game was when Kleiza went for Arroyo's pump fake and instead of 3 free throws for Arroyo it was a dunk for Kleiza at the other end, a potential 5 point swing with a couple of minutes to go.

    I enjoyed the game.

    At least we don't have to worry about him playing too much in all these tournaments since he fouls out or gets benched for fouls so much. :P

    i was able to watch two quarters before I couldn't get a damn link to work anymore...

    was wondering if our Lithuanian friends noticed the offensive flow of the national team did not look very good.

    shooters were crowding the pick n roll...making it useless. Floor spacing was dreadful. Bad shot selection etc... I really did not enjoy watching that game

    After the game coach Kemzura mentioned the offense was very bad. It was an extremely nervous game so I can fully understand the offense being terrible. However he was happy that Maciulis and Songaila played their roles wonderfully.

    Regarding JV... I really don't get anyone who wants him in summer league, cause he's not getting much to play? Firstly, he does get to play and he would play even more if not the silly fouls. And I think the best way to fix it is to work right through that problem, not to run away to some 1 week long league full of scrubs. I do believe JV will be one of the main guys in Olympics (if qualified) since both Javtokas (C) and Songaila (PF/C) are pretty old already and they had to play full seasons and soon the fatigue might catch up to them. Jonas just needs to believe in himself more. It feels like he's thinking the team doesn't need him that much when in reality, him playing good would lift this Lithuanian team to entirely another level. So basically, he needs more confidence and more mature play (less silly fouls, overdoing stuff).
