    • Anyone keeping an eye on Jonas and the Lithuanian men's basketball team this summer?

      I see the FIBA tournament starts August 30th, with exhibition games before that.

      Anyone know where to stay up on the LT team news before FIBA starts?

            Amir shows up in random places. Wouldnt be surprised if he's in Lithuanian training with their team. However, heard Bruno, Bebe and DeAndre were with JV in Vancouver.

              It's also possible that Jonas will just join them later than usual.

                I read that he will join the team on august 6th, until then he is practicing on the Raptors' scheduled workouts

                • Way to go Jonas. Anxious to see what he brings to the table on October 28th, or whenever the season starts.

                    Actually, preseason games will start middle of October I guess. Only like 11 weeks away.

                      I love the dates of fiba world cup. Even if Lithuania goes to finals, Jonas will get couple weeks of rest. Good to know!

                        First game of the regular season for the raptorz is usually the 31st too. Just remember not trick or treating after the age of 12 to watch the raptors.

                        • In the past Jonas has come to Raptors camp well rested because he usually rides the bench at these FIBA events.

                            I'm thinking not this year. should help him come into camp in top condition though.

                              well rested? wut?

                              If I remember correctly, Jonas averaged 17 min per game during Eurobasket and 27+ during friendly games. Lithuania played 12+ friendly games in 3 weeks, also 11 tournament games in 19 days. Don't forget travel and crazy endurance camps. Jonas came back to Toronto just few days after he won silver medal.

                              Well rested, you say?

                              • The pattern in FIBA games seems to be Jonas starts game, Jonas picks up two quick fouls and sits, Jonas returns in the third quarter and promptly fouls and goes back to the bench.
