Lithuania was drawn alongside Canada, Australia and Senegal in Group H of the World Cup. The 26-year-old center is determined to help his National Team at Dongguan and beyond during the summer tournament: “If they aren’t any health issues or other conditions that won’t allow me to play, I definitely will play.”
The Grizzlies added him via trade last February, but Valanciunas wishes to extend his tenure at Memphis upon the start of the 2019-20 NBA Regular Season. “The coach trusted me a lot. It was fun to play for the Grizzlies. Coach focused on big players and I liked it. He’s gone, but this is just a business and GMs making decisions that would be the best for the team. I would like to carry on playing for the Grizzlies” he said.
