Toronto Raptors - Jonas Valančiūnas - C - 6'11, 231 - 5th overall (2011 Draft)

The Raptors believe they have found their long term solution at centre. Valančiūnas is long, gritty and spends the majority of his time in the paint. His offensive game will be defined by his pick-and-roll play and offensive rebounds. And considering he shoots almost 80% from the free throw line, Valančiūnas should immediately contribute in the NBA. If he can keep his fouls under control, he'll be a key cog in the Raptors' playoff hopes.

I thought Jonas was a legit 7 footer

I'm not surprised that Ross isn't mentioned, he's been brought in for shooting and defense, when it comes to rookies everyone really only looks at points and then maybe other stats, Ross playing defense is not going to get him any recognition and he's not going to be high on the pecking order for point even on this team so he's not going to get much mention
but as long as he's good for us i couldn't care less about recognition
