Jonas Valanciunas Rytas Coach Liked Him Better Before

The Toronto Raptors Jonas Valanciunas has joined his National teammates in Lithuania and got into a practice session on Thursday, however, the former Head Coach of Lietuvos Rytas (Valanciunas’ former club team) Rimas Kurtinaitis liked him better before he went to the NBA.

 

 

Valanciunas has gotten bigger and stronger since coming over from Rytas two years ago. Whether or not that hurts his performance in FIBA competitions is questionable, but the Raptors are looking to develop a center for the NBA.
