First up is Jonas Valanciunas, the Raptors’ fifth overall selection from 2011 who is expected to join the Raptors this fall. Valanciunas may not have had his finest three-game stretch building up to the final match (including some persistent foul trouble), but he saved his best for last with a potent 17-point, seven-rebound performance against the Dominican ...
