Jono vallančiūno profilis (pagal Keviną Peltoną)

Jonas Valanciunas
Position: Center
Experience: 3 years

Scouting report
+ Promising young center who took a step forward offensively last season and now must do the same on D
+ Efficient post scorer. Also dangerous rolling to the basket in pick-and-roll situations
+ Underrated rim protector. Struggles when asked to defend on perimeter

Even though Valanciunas is no longer in a contract year after agreeing to a four-year, $64 million extension in August, this is still a key season for his development. Amir Johnson's departure takes away Valanciunas' security blanket and means he must step into the role of defensive anchor to make his new contract the bargain it appears.

Last season did see Valanciunas make good on the offensive potential he'd flashed in Europe. He improved his 2-point percentage from 53.1 percent to 57.2 percent while increasing his share in Toronto's offense. Valanciunas was one of the league's best post scorers on a per-play basis. His 51.3 percent shooting on post-ups ranked third among players with at least 100 attempts per Synergy Sports tracking on Valanciunas was even more efficient on rare pick-and-roll opportunities, shooting an excellent 57.9 percent on just 57 attempts. He's also an accurate free throw shooter for a big man, making 78.6 percent last season, and has been reasonably accurate on his occasional midrange looks.

An intimidating paint presence, Valanciunas held opponents to a relatively good shooting percentage (46.5 percent) within five feet of the hoop, per SportVU tracking on Still, Valanciunas finds himself a half-step late as a help defender on a regular basis. His limited agility is also an issue defending on the perimeter and was one reason Johnson frequently finished games at center in place of Valanciunas. Without that option this season, Valanciunas will have to be ready on D.

Donato Motiejūno profilis:

Donatas Motiejunas
Position: Forward
Experience: 3 years
2014-15 stats

Scouting report
+ Emerged as crafty post scorer during breakthrough third NBA season
+ Can make hook shots with either post around the basket, and is a capable 3-point shooter
+ Plays both frontcourt positions, held his own as team's primary rim protector

After playing fewer than 1,500 minutes combined in his first two seasons in Houston, Motiejunas made some noise about his role. Last season, injuries to Jones and Howard opened the door for Motiejunas to start 62 games and prove he's an NBA-caliber big man. Alas, the last Rockets frontcourt injury was to Motiejunas, who underwent season-ending back surgery just before the playoffs.He still wasn't back running by the start of training camp, which could put his availability for the beginning of the regular season in jeopardy.

Among players with at least 100 shots on post-ups, according to Synergy Sports tracking, Motiejunas' 53.4 percent shooting in the post was the league's best. Motiejunas can shoot hooks with either hand, and while his footwork in the post looks awkward at times, that actually works to his benefit because he stays on balance while defenders get out of position. On top of his post skills, Motiejunas realized his potential as an outside shooter in 2014-15, making 36.8 percent of his 3-point attempts. Given that combo, it's hard to believe Motiejunas had a true shooting percentage (.553) only somewhat better than league average (.534). Part of the problem is even the best post scorers aren't as efficient as other players. Motiejunas also generates relatively few free throw attempts, costing him easy opportunities.

Due to the injuries, Motiejunas started at both frontcourt positions. The team was far more effective with him at power forward, in part because he got to play with Howard. Houston allowed just 95.8 points per 100 possessions with both players on the court, per -- a mark that would have led the league -- as compared to 102.9 when Motiejunas played without Howard. Motiejunas is a poor shot blocker for a center, so it's not surprising the Rockets were more effective defensively when he played with one.

Centras Kyle O'Quinn mainų būdu keliasi iš Orlando į Knicks.

Kevin Pelton (ESPN): "O'Quinn was near the top of my as-yet-unwritten list of value free agents, and the Knicks are getting him on a great deal: four years and $16 million, according to ESPN's Ian Begley, less than other backup centers like Brandan Wright and Aron Baynes are getting over the next three years.

Ultimately, this was primarily a free-agent signing, and a good one. During his first three NBA seasons in Orlando, O'Quinn put up impressive numbers when adjusted for his limited playing time: 13.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per 36 minutes. He's even shown a little ability to stretch the floor from the center position, making 12 3-pointers last season, albeit at a 27.9 percent clip.

At 25, O'Quinn probably doesn't have a ton of additional upside, but he should be an above-average backup at worst and at best, possibly even an adequate starter at center. Getting that for less than the mid-level exception is excellent value. I project his value at $27 million over the next three years, more than O'Quinn will make over the length of the four-year contract."

Kosta Koufos susitarrė dėl 4 metų kontrakto su Sakramento Kings:
"The Sacramento Kings made their second major splash of the free-agent season, agreeing to terms on a four-year contract with Kosta Koufos. According to's Marc Stein, the deal is worth $33 million and includes a player option after the third year."

Roy Hibbertas greičiausiai papildys Lakers gretas:
"Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported the Lakers and Pacers are finalizing a deal that would send Hibbert to the Lakers. Los Angeles would take Hibbert's $15.5 million salary on with the Pacers receiving picks and the rights to overseas players. Wojnarowski reported the final issue being worked out by the teams is Hibbert's 15-percent, $2.3 million trade kicker that will be paid by the Pacers, but will impact the Lakers' cap room."

FA turgus šią vasarą ypatingas. Žaidėjai graibstomi neįtikėtnu greičiu. Nepamenu, kad kada taip būtų buvę. Pagrindinė priežastis - didėsiantis cap space'as. Dėl to siūlomi įspūdingai dideli ilgalaikiai kontraktai. Kažkas fantastiško vyksta pastarąsias dienas

ESPN: LeBron James declined his $21.57M player option for 2015-16 and is expected to sign a new deal worth $21.97M for next season. But if he waits until 2017 to sign a new long-term deal, he could be in line for a contract averaging $40M per season.

O Knicks nebuvo kur dėtis, kai Okafora paėmė iš po panosės. Ėmė future star iš likusios bandos. Nors rizika didelė, bet kaip ir minėjau, nebuvo kito tokio talento ateity galinčiu būt ryškiu dominuojančiu žaidėju. Winslow netoli to, bet talentu toli rakom do kitaja.

Tipo antras Fariedas. Spėju su Jonesu suks mainus ižaidėjui gaut, o dėl Gudaičio, tai pats hujoviausias įmanomas scenarijus paėjo. Žiauriai sunku bus pravert duris aplamai NBA, o ne šių prasmirdėlių. Paėmė tie, pas kuriuos net nevažiavo ir paėmė visus iš eilės bigus... grynai prasmirdus organizacija... ir džiaugias širdis LAL sėkme bei eilinio rago įstumimu 76ers :)

antras Hiustono naujokas - Montrezlas Harrellas - taip pat geras žaidėjas. Buvo kalbama, kad Bostonas jį gali pašaukti. Nenustebčiau, jei ilgainiui Harrellas pasirodys esąs geresnis žaidėjas nei Dekkeris.

Denveriui pasisekė - gauti Mudiay 7 šaukimu yra geras dalykas. Ne mažiau pasisekė pačiam Mudiay. Denveryje jis turės visišką laisvę, skirtingai nuo Niujorko, kur jam būtų tekę taikytis prie trikampio puolimo sistemos.

Šiek tiek netikėta, kad Knicks pasirinko Porzingį. Tai rodo, kad Philui Jacksonui nerūpi neigiama fanų reakcija :) Geriau jau latvis nebūtų bustas.

Šarlotė pasirinko Kaminskį. Nieko keisto - apžvalgininkai ne kartą minėjo, kad MJ patinka šitas žaidėjas :)

Heat gavo ko norėjo. Winslow sėkmingai susiklosčius aplinkybėms gali tapti žvaigžde

Fyniksas pašaukė geriausią draftų metiką Deviną Bookerį. Vaikinas lyginamas su K.Thompsonu, turėtų sužibėti Fynikse.

Hiustonas pašaukė Samą Dekkerį. Tikimasi, kad jis taps Ch.Parsonso tipo žaidėju.

Bostonas tikrai turėjo iš ko rinktis, pašaukė metiką R.J.Hunterį. Gal ir neblogas pasirinkimas turint omeny NBA tendencijas ir komandos poreikius.

Chad Ford apie Knicks situaciją:
Life without Towns, Okafor or Russell on the board is the Knicks' worst nightmare. They're trying to figure out a trade that allows them to move down a few spots and grab Phil Jackson's favorite, Frank Kaminsky. I don't know that they know what they are doing if they keep the pick. Things were still quite fluid Wednesday night. All I can say is Mudiay is really good and they really could use a major upgrade in the backcourt. Mudiay might not be the ideal point guard for the triangle, but at this point, he's the safer of the two options left on the board. And at the very least, he might be the best trade bait.

"Lakers vis dėlto pasirinks". Ech, kur komentarų redagavimo funkcija, kuomet jos prireikia :)
2015-06-25 17:34:09 Cituoti
Bleacher Report mano, kad lkares vis dėlto pasirinks D'Angelo Russelą antru šaukimu. Tokiu atveju gautųsi įdomi situacija - ką pasirinks 76-ers? Logiškai mąstant, jiems labiau tiktų įžaidėjas, nes centrų ir taip turi. Taigi jeigu 76-ers rinktųsi Mudiay, tuomet ateitų šventė į Knicks niemą - jie pašauktų Okaforą ketvirtu šaikimu. Taigi nukritimas draftuose Knicksams kaip ir nepasijaustų.

Keletas kitų šviežesnių gandų:

Terrence Jones: According to's Marc Stein, the Rockets are shopping the forward.

Kostas Papanikolaou: The Houston Rockets exercised their team option on Wednesday. Papanikolaou is a trade asset for the Rockets as his contract does not become guaranteed until Oct. 4.

Danilo Gallinari: According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, the Denver Nuggets have made the small forward available for a trade. Gallinari with an expiring contract, has dealt with injuries the last few years.

David West: The forward surprised many on Wednesday with word he will decline his 2015-16 player option worth $12.6 million, according to The Indianapolis Star. There is a chance he won't re-sign with the Indiana Pacers so he can move to a big 2016 playoff contender.

Eric Bledsoe: According to's Chris Broussard, the rumored talks between the Knicks and Suns regarding the guard and the No. 4 pick in the 2015 NBA draft are not happening.
