JONAS
VALANCIUNAS

New Orleans • 2021-22
Feb. 8, 2019 - After six and a half intriguing but limited seasons in Toronto, Jonas Valanciunas will get an opportunity to make a name for himself with the rebuilding Grizzlies. While Valanciunas, a mostly traditional big man, has seen his role reined back over the course of the past few seasons, his per minute production has skyrocketed. There may be somewhat of a ceiling on what the 26-year-old is capable of doing in starter's minutes but there's no denying that he's more than the niche, 18.8 MPG-player he was through the first half of the 2018-19 season in Toronto.
