Lithuania was eliminated from the World Cup on Saturday despite the best efforts of Jonas Valanciunas, who tallied 18 points, eight rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 26 minutes.
Valanciunas went 6-for-12 from the field and 6-for-9 at the line, also finishing as the only Lithuanian starter with a positive plus-minus. It's worth mentioning that he bullied the French (and Rudy Gobert) in the paint all day. He's primed for a big season in Memphis, though we would caution fantasy managers from chasing last season's numbers directly since they came with Jaren Jackson Jr. out of action. JV is still looking at a comfortable middle-round season with upside, though.
