Valanciunas a legit 7'0"

Combing back through my notes from Eurocamp. Valanciunas measured 7'0"/245 lb with a 7-4 wingspan & 9' 3" standing reach there.

We had Valanciunas listed at 6-10/230lbs. Pretty big difference.

I think the Cavs should take him at #4. Him and Irving would be a deadly pick-&-roll tandem. You have to think he still has a chance to grow, he just turned 19. Imagine if he did, he could be a monster in the future if he keeps putting on weight and improves his post moves even more

If he last to Toronto, they need to take him. Raptors also need to trade Barg for a legit small forward.

This guy has great defensive potential. He already is considered a good defender and an excellent rebounder.

Yeah, his numbers are almost as good as Darko's combine numbers. I can't believe he will last all the way to the number 4 spot.

I've watched a couple hours of film on this guy...

and I was shocked by how unimpressive he was.

I don't think he'll ever develop into a legit NBA player. His offensive game is worse than Biyombo's in my opinion (more moves, but less athleticism for put-backs). No chance I'd pick him in the top 10.

He fouls like a madman and is very raw offensively.

"Yeah, his numbers are almost as good as Darko's combine numbers."

I get the point you are trying to make, but I find that as a HUGE red flag.
