• TSN’s Josh Lewenberg grabbed some quotes from Raptors coach Dwane Casey, who said that the team’s new offense will ask Jonas Valanciunas to make more plays at the top of the key.

     Valanciunas will see fewer post ups and the team will count on him to improve as a playmaker and decision maker as they place the onus on ball movement. Casey also said that JV could close some games and that he’s been impressed by the big man’s awareness this camp. We’ll believe that when we see it, as it’d buck a career-long trend after Toronto finally locked up the defensive-minded big they’ve been searching for for years. Even if none of that comes to pass, Valanciunas should deliver top-100 numbers thanks to his scoring, rebounding and strong efficiency.
