Jonas Valanciunas - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Toronto Raptors (Canada-NBA)
Career: Perlas Vilnius (Lithuania-LKL, 2008-10); Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (Lithuania-LKL, 2010-12); Toronto Raptors (Canada-NBA, 2012-13)


One of the most exciting young European players, 21-year-old Jonas Valanciunas has put a successful rookie season under his belt in the NBA and will be hoping to take the momentum to the international arena. Having averaged 8.9 points and six rebounds for the Toronto Raptors last season, the center exceeded all expectations that came after two great seasons with Lietuvos Rytas. However, after an impressive international debut in EuroBasket 2011, last summer's experience with the national team was not as sweet for Valanciunas, as the talented big man did not get much playing time in a generally disappointing performance at the 2012 Olympics. Having become considerably stronger and worked on his post-game, the prospect will look to establish himself as one of the top centers in the competition and has all the tools to achieve this goal.
