Initially I was very disappointed with the pick since Brandon Knight was still on the board. I was said that I didn't mind Valanciunas as a player- he tries hard on defence and rebounding. I was down on how he needs to wait a year before coming. Patience hasn't always been my thing, but hopefully this pick is for the better of the franchise.

I think that most people are upset because of the European big man label. I know he isn't strong, but he has a high motor and chases the ball. I think Dwane Casey said it best: "I don't care if he's from Tibucktu, as long as he can play ball".
