  • Uro Slokar / Jonas Valanciunas comparison

    Jonas Valanciunas
    Draft Day 6'11 231 From Lithuania 19 yrs old
    Uros Slokar:
    Draft day stats 6'11 230 from Slovenian 21yrs old

    What they said about slokar ...

    been extremely well coached and he seems to be a team oriented player. He is just extremely active ... rugged interior presence...

    ...Never the less, he's not a great shooter yet...

    ...Can put the ball on the floor and go strong to the hoop....Decent mobility, rather fast for a big man, he can run the floor quite well,

    what they say about Jonas
    incredibly intense competitor, a boundlessly energetic player who never stops working for a moment and whose presence is constantly felt on the court.

    ...Valanciunas' game needs refinement, particularly his ball-handling and passing abilities. He turns the ball over at a pretty high rate and definitely has a ways to go in terms of improving his basketball IQ and overall experienc

    ...has had consistent foul problems over the course of the year -- another reason that his playing time has been limited. In the Euroleague, for example, he commits approximately one foul for every 4 minutes (watch out Amir)....

    Valanciunas is a frequent target for opposing teams to post up due to his narrow frame and lack of experience, especially in the Euroleague, where almost every team has a bulky old school back-to-the-basket pivot who can simply overpower Valanciunas in one-on-one situations....

    Valanciunas attempted only 8 (of 427 total possessions) jumpers all season
