For a lot of Raptors fans, and a lot of NBA fans in general, the Olympics and watching Lithuania will be the first reach chance to get a look at last year’s No. 5 overall pick, center Jonas Valanciunas.
He was the guy everyone was saying maybe turns out to be the best (or second best) player in the 2011 draft, but would take some time to develop. He was a risk, so he slid down to No. 5. But if this clip is any indication, the Raptors are going to be a lot of fun next season.
