Valanciunas To Sign Deal Soon
 
Quote:

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.

Him and Lowry have me excited for the season to start. Should be a fun season, let's hope anyway.

Please hurry!

Good news. Hopefully he won't take to long coming over.

After the Olympics I suppose.

ross also has me a little excited, looks like he might be able to contribute too
but the change at PG has me most excited, so many years now i have been saying i wanted jose gone just for the reason of having a change at PG, not because of how good or not jose actually is

I hope he has bulked up since he was drafted a year ago...
I like his mindset and working ethics, but with his skinny body, he can't survive in NBA pro world, imo. :cookie:

Anthony Davis is a skinny guy and he seems to be doing well

Well unless Davis is going to play SF that comparison means very little to nothing.

He's also a lot taller than most SF's and has an amazing wingspan. Does Davis have more length than most Centers?

OMG Davis is on dream team 2.0 for one reason, and one reason only, and that is so they can begin cultivating a major marketing money maker. Don't kid yourself, the kid is no place even close to being a justifiable pick on that team. Jesus.

durant's size helps him but i think it's just his absurd skill level that makes him awesome. Don't know loads about Davis but thought he was supposed to have a big wingspan and be super-athletic.

Wingspan from what I've read is 7'4", same as Valanciunas.
