More the time Big V can get on the court here learning the NBA game the better. If he can get a solid 20 games in this year, it will give our staff a better idea as to what he needs to work on, improve ect.

contractually, how would this work? if he came over now, would it eat up the entire first year of his rookie contract? if that's the case then there's no way this is true.

yes it would.
it's also slightly risky for him too, what if there's a career ending injury, he then only has 1 year + 30 something games guaranteed.
It also may affect the buyout size he's able to pay - it would be insane of him to pay based on non-guaranteed salary.
But mostly it's the Raptors side. Do you really want to lose a year on the cheap? If you think he's not developing properly right now, I'd say yes, you absolutely do it. If you are more or less fine, then you might be better off waiting till June or July.

I think this is a complete BS there isn't a single word about this in Lithuanian basketball sites. Plus now JV's team really needs him as they are playing in the playoffs. And finally he will be playing for the national team in the summer. BC said that he is happy with the way JV is improving in Europe. I think that this is just a rumor and there is 0.000001% chance that he is really coming over this season.

i have a feeling this might be about weems, his team is on the verge of getting out of the euro league, he might be coming back to the NBA

Talking about Weems, Zalgiris owner said that he doesn't care what Weems is saying to the media, he has a contract till the end of the season and he has to fulfill his obligations.
