that being said, he will need time to adapt defensively & to develop his body so he can handle the daily grind, but all in good time.
TRUE LOVE - Sometimes you know it the instant you see it across the bar.
He would still need to bang with the big boys. He has a frame that is smaller than Davis' is now. Even Bogut was averaging about 9pts / 7rbs in his first year.
If JV can average around what Bogut averaged in his first year, I'll be very happy.
Just to rain on the parade a little...

I guess we're to assume the GMs mean best NBA PROSPECT not in the NBA. AK47 is still 10x better than JV.NBA GMs voting Valanciunas the best international player not in the NBA isn't a great sign for the state of NBA international scouting.
maybe there was something to that ESPN rumor and Rytas wouldn't let him out of the deal
He has mentioned as well, he is following Raptors performance (i remember someone in RR being curious about it).
Your ex came by; you can call me Jonas Valanciunas, cause I'm the king of rebounds!
9 pts, 10 boards (6 def), 2 blks, 1 stl, 3 to, 3/4 ft, 3/5 fg, 20:20 min in the 73-80 loss to Nymburk today
Jv is deandre jordan with more offense
I think early on he suffered a minor setback with a calf injury but, it just limited some of his playing time, but we’ve very excited obviously about what his potential is and about where he is as a player and where he’s coming. I think he was a little burned out just from the repeated competition, the back-to-back world championship under nineteen, to the Euro championship and it was something that he had to recover from, emotionally and physically, but I think he is a very bright spot on our future horizon.
