Apparently, Lietuvos Rytas isn't interested in forcing Valanciunas to play in Europe next year. They just want a cheque.
In fact, they'd prefer that Jonas didn't play for them next year, since they're in financial trouble and they need the money.
Also, in the event of a lockout Lietuvos Rytas is willing to keep Jonas on the roster until he signs his rookie contract.
I posted this information previously in the Valanciunas thread: Draft profile: Jonas Valanciunas
