He's just young, average center, playing in Eurocup (NBDL for your understanding).

If you look closely at his game - he's lacking of... everything.
He cannot create an opportunity
weak defender, especially against stronger opponents
No game with his back to the rim
foul prone

etc.

Look at his stats at EuroCup:
VALANCIUNAS, JONAS - Welcome to Eurocup

Look at his stats in Lithuanian Basketball league:
lkl.lt
He's good against teams without centers, but he was complete zero against Euroleague team - Zalgiris (Sonny weems team)...

He's soooo overrated player....
Your hate on Jonas is hard to understand. You being biased against him - strange coming from lithuanian. He did well playing for national team vs top NBA talent like Nowitzki, Kaman, Gasol's and Ibaka. He destroyed Kristic in game vs Serbia. Whatever his stats are now playing for Rytas means squat - check Rubio stats before he came to NBA did they look impressive? Rytas is bunch of chuckers with yugoslavian coach who sets all his game through perimeter guards and they do not run any plays for Jonas and yet he still is able to post respectable stats in limited minutes. He struggled vs Zalgiris but he played sick, and yet vs best team in Europe ( CSKA ) he posted double double 10pts/11reb in 20 min of play. Why you not talking about it?
And to call him average and ignore his crazy physical tools and potential means you dissing opinions of numerous NBA GM's or NBA scouts... Why don't you apply for the job as a scout, I bet some team will gladly hire such an expert, you probably will come cheaper then most scouts anyway right?
