    I don't think JV will get 30+ mpg. That's a lot of minutes for a rookie, who can quickly hit that rookie wall. I'd say closer to 17/18 mpg, and even then that's a bit high in my opinion. Davis is only getting about 17 mpg this year, and he's a sophomore in the NBA.
    Though, as a rookie Ed Davis was playing 25 mpg.
    I don't think it's out of the question for Val to be playing 5 more per as a rookie.

      Good point, however that was under Triano's system. I'm not sure if Casey would be as forgiving. I would love to be proven wrong though

      • Well right, i forgot the fact, they have only got Magloire and Gray for one year contract. And Ed is playing Bargs position. And it is obvious, for me at least, Bargs is dominating atm, which gives no minutes for Ed. Looking from this perspection, Val should get enough minutes next year being main center behind (or above Amir). it will depend for sure, how will he show himself..

          Absolutely. I hope players, no matter the draft pick and hype have to earn their minutes. Obviously they should get cut some slack on mistakes but if the effort is not there, they shouldn't play in my opinion. I honestly don't think this would be an issue with ED.

          • L. Rytas loses to Zalgirls 82-72.

            JV statline:

            2 pts
            1/3 fg
            0/0 ft
            8 rebs
            0 ast
            1 stl
            0 blk

            1 pf
            7 eff
            19:05 minutes

            Not a great game for JV but the rebounding numbers are stellar.

            Sonny Weems also played:

            15 pts
            4/9 fg
            0/2 3pt

              For once Sonny took care of the ball, and JV didn't lol, how ironic.

                  In Lithuanian:
                  1) yes, words end in "-as"
                  2) unfortunately, "blogas" means "bad"

                  So this blog's title became "bad Val". Now I want to hear about good Val.

                  • this is hypothetical. but....

                    if valanciunas is done before the raps are...

                    could we sign him to ten day contracts for the rest of the year or since he is under our control can he participate in team events and practices, prior to him being signed?

                          I don't know but I don't think so.

                          The reason why I say no is a first round draft pick has a guaranteed contract already in place. I would think the only way to sign the player for anything different than the guaranteed contract (2 years, plus 2 team option years) would be to renounce his rights.

                          I am sure part or maybe all the above is wrong but I don't think the hypothetical is possible.

                          • Raptors help pave way for arrival of JV

                            a three-pronged approach the Raptors are taking. They also want Valanciunas to be on the right physical program, so when he comes in for summer league next year, he is in peak shape. And they want to begin some cultural assimilationThe Raptors will send assistant general manager Maurizio Gherardini to Lithuanua this month to begin working with Valanciunas.

                            • Apparently Valanciunas was ill, flu or something like that, last weeks, and he wasn't practising today.

                              (At 00:20 he just mention JV isn't practising today, then talking other stuff, but starting 5:45 mark talking JV stuff till the end.



                              P.S. Gherardini was already in Arena, watching their last game and was seen talking with Jonas today.

                              • Lithuania is participating in the last ditch tournament to get into the Olympics (2–8 July 2012). Summer League is usually in early July. I can't see Jonas not participating in the Olympic qualifier. As anybody heard anything different.
