Scouting Jonas Valanciunas


DraftExpress's Jonathan Givony has been following top prospect Jonas Valanciunas through Europe. Though he's still very raw (and skinny), I love this kid's potential. He ought to measure at 7'0" in shoes with a 7'6" wingspan if he attends the combine. He's a hard worker with long arms and good timing on his jump. He's pretty clutch too, putting up video game-like stats in some big games thus far in his young career. In my opinion, he compares pretty favorably to hustle bigs like Joakim Noah, Tyson Chandler and Andris Biedrins. His high FT% (87.5%) seems to be indicative of some potential to expand his range as well.

Givony had the opportunity to not only scout Valanciunas, but to have a solid sit-down interview with him as well. It is definitely worth checking out:
