Default Valanciunas To Sign Deal Soon

The Toronto Raptors drafted Jonas Valanciunas with the No. 5 pick in 2011 and he is close to signing with the NBA team, reports the Toronto Star.

According to the newspaper, the NBA has received the letter of clearance from FIBA and Valanciunas should sign his rookie-scale contract in the next few days. The Raptors' roster will stand at 12 once Valanciunas signs the deal.

Valanciunas might start upfront next to Andrea Bargnani during the pre-season.

From the insider again. No big surprises here, but definitely good to hear
