Jonas Valanciunas is expected to return to the Memphis Grizzlies on a three-year deal worth 45 million dollars, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Valanciunas declined the 2019-2020 option ($17.6M) of his contract in order to negotiate the new long-term deal as a free agent.

The 27-year-old big guy joined Memphis following a trade with the Toronto Raptors in March. In 19 games with the Grizzlies, Valanciunas averaged 19.9 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists and 1.6 blocks over 27.7 minutes.
