Video: Another big dunk from Wednesday… Jonas Valanciunas

Raptors' Valanciunas looks on during a break in play against the Pistons during their NBA presseason basketball game in Toronto Reuters

Ladies and gentlemen, Jonas Valanciunas.

This is the Raptors rookie, the No. 5 overall pick from 2011 who is about to debut in the NBA this season. He’s looked a bit raw at times, he needs to get stronger, but he does have a move or two. And he can finish.

Raptors fans have high hopes for Valanciunas. They may just need to be patient. It’s going to be a couple years before we all really know what the Raptors have with him.

    Looks like a fit, athletic Kevin Love. Wonder how the rest of his game stacks up?

    His last name is begging to be pronounced “Veloci”

    as in… Veloci-raptor!

    Well done, Toronto. I see what you did in the draft, now!
