Jonas Valanciunas has inked a four-year, $64-million contract extension with the Toronto Raptors, but it couldn’t have been an easy decision to make for team brass. The Lithuanian big man’s future with the franchise is largely dependent on his ability to develop as a player. Valanciunas has always impressed with his physical play and ability under the post. However, his relatively lacking defensive-end performance last season saw him sitting out more fourth quarters than not. Either way you cut it, the core player’s continued presence on the team is a steal—come 2016-17, the Raptors’ salary cap will hit around the $100 million mark, effectively opening up a lot of room for additional talent.

We’re calling this one a win no matter what happens. See you in October, JV.
