    A look at his offensive skill set here:



    Looks like a decent passer as well.
    Does that mean that we have to call Bargnani and Valanciunas the European Connection? :P

        What really wowed me about this game is that Lithuania lost by 22 points and Valanciunas was +4 in 21 minutes (5th in minutes played). Didn't watch the game but that is impressive.

          But of all the stats that were given, the one that really stood out was his 3 rebounds for 21 minutes of play. I'm hoping that this is only a one game thing, but I was hoping for at least 5 boards with 21 minutes for a guy his size. On the more positive side, I really like how he only had 2 fouls that game. Hopefully he can be able to manage his fouls in the NBA as well.

          • Here's the Lithuania vs Russia friendly game. Watching Valanciunas in this game, it is clear that he needs some work, but he is a player... just gets it done. The boxscore didn't do justice and his boxscore was pretty good for a young kid playing against a good Russian team (Mozgov is the backup Centre). There was an impressive play in the game where JV outworks Mozgov for an offensive rebound, putback and foul.

            • Tomorrows Exhibition game (07/24/12): Lithuania vs Iceland 12 ET
              Followed by: USA vs Spain at 4:30

              The later should be a very exciting game. I think USA has its work cut out for them. Spain does have a size advantage in the front-court (mainly the 4 and 5 positions), which I can see causing USA some problems down the road. It should be a fun game i guess well have to wait and see!

                  • I've noticed that this US team doesn't carry "invisible" status, already. Wouldn't be surprised if Spain wins.

                        You mean invincible right lol
                        I agree with you, watching them play Argentina made me feel that a gold medal for USA is not completely set in stone.
