Valanciunas has guaranteed Top 10 pick
Source: A mate of mine is one of the best friends with Valanciunas as well as U-19 Lithuanian National Teamate.
Valanciunas flew to the New Jersey last night being safe and promissed with Top 10 pick. And there is no chance that he is slipping past 9th Bobcats. So keeping updating your mock, but Big-V is in the top 10. Cavs will be so dissapointed if they don't take him at 4. They are not making playoffs for the next 3-4 years, by then Big-V will be dominant force in NBA. Mark my words.
valanciunas is a very talented guy, one of the guy who can improve a lot, expecially if there'll be a lockout
the buyout can be a problem for some team, but if i need a big man, i will choose him after kanter in this draft
I think Cleveland will move down from 4 and take him. Maybe this deal?
#4 pick and Baron Davis to Detroit for Richard Hamilton and the #8 pick? Allows Detroit to go get a Kanter or Knight, allows Cleveland to move down to get Jonas
I'm thinking the best he could ever do is 12 points and 7.5 rebounds a game. I don't think there's a chance he'll be a dominant force.
I think he'll be very impressive and didn't think he could fall below #9 anyway.
There are a lot of teams interested in Valanciunas in the top 10. The Bucks and the Warriors are rumored to be interested even if he won't join them for 2 years. No chance he would slip to the Rockets at #14.
He's been highly productive by the numbers. But when I watch him play I'm consistently underwhelmed. He could grow into a force, but right now he's incredibly raw with very few basketball skills.
Hi Valanciunas haterz!!!
In the end like I mentioned HE HAS BEEN PROMISSED WITH TOP 10 PICK!!! And Big V is coming to Cle Town!
