Starting at center for Lietuvos Rytas in three Final Four tournaments, as well as the Lithuanian League finals; Jonas Valanciunas endured a busy start to 2012, that also saw him feature in the Lithuanian League All-Star game, announced as Eurocup rising star, and named as a member of the All-Eurocup squad. Summer offered no rest for the NBA-bound rising star, who picked up significant minutes representing Lithuania at the Olympic Qualifying Tournament, and subsequently London. Valanciunas has now completed the year by cementing a starting spot at the Toronto Raptors.
