Jonas Valanciunas' First NBA Poster
The hype has been growing. After spending the 2011 season with Lietuvos Rytas, Jonas Valanciunas has impressed in his first 3 preseason games with the Raptors. He enters the league at 7"0 ft, 257 lbs - bigger dimensions than Dwight Howard had in his rookie season, and so far Valanciunas has also shown a wide array of skills. He runs the floor, has a nice touch around the rim, is aggressive on both ends of the floor and has a finely tuned jump shot.
What we haven't seen yet, is Jonas putting a fellow NBA player on a poster. Well, we can now cross that off the list - thanks Emeka Okafor!
