Default Jonas Valanciunas is killing it in FIBA

Right now he's killing it in FIBA. Below is his stats.

vs Croatia : 19 points, 13 rebounds,
vs Korea : 25 points, 17 rebounds, FG 11/11
vs USA : 30 points, 15 rebounds, 4 blocks
vs Poland : 26 points, 24 rebounds, 5 assists

Competition isn't really great as this is U19 tournament, but do the Raptors fans have a reason to get excited?

The Kid looks great, so far. Funny how people were saying they drafted another Bargnani, seems the opposite is true.

8/8 or 10/8.. davis/bargani/derozan gets 1st dibs on offense.. everybody else gets the scraps, maybe until he proves himself enough to eat at the big table then he might post 13 pts/8-10 rebs..

Yea, I didn't know anything about him but watched one of his FIBA games and he's nothing like Bargnani. Way more athletic/agile, not soft at all, crashes the boards, plays with the hustle of Amir a little bit. Still looks raw offensively to me though, but don't care, Raptors finally got a Euro who's not a p*ssy. Still really skinny however.

Yeah because the great and proven trio of Davis, Bargs and Derozan shouldn't defer to some new kid just like that...

People on ISH don't count. No professional scout was ever comparing Valanciunas to Bargnani. That would be equivalent of saying that Love and Amar'e are similar.

I would of liked him but there was no chance Kahn was going to draft someone if they weren't going to be on the team this year. His job is on the line now and if Taylor doesn't see a lot of improvement then Kahn will probably be out after next year.
