Default Jonas Valanciunas - possible top 5 pick

The 6'11" PF/C is only 18 years old from Lithuania and is projected as a top 5 pick in next year's draft should he declare.

He's currently playing in the U18 European championships and just had 18 points and 11 rebounds and kept his team undefeated. He's averaging 17 points, 12 rebounds, 2 blocks and shooting 80% from FT line and 56% from the field.

He played on an average team in Lithuania this past season and averaged 12 points (62% from the field; 75% FT), 8 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks in 24 minutes per game. He's considered a better prospect than Motiejunas so it'll in be interesting to see his development in the next year.
