Cohen 8-Ball: Rising Stars Challenge Mock Draft
TEAM SHAQ #5 (9)
Jonas Valanciunas, Raptors
Cohen’s Analysis: There was a ton of hype surrounding Valanciunas prior to starting his NBA career and after a substandard rookie year it appears he is starting to realize his potential. Jonas – a legit low post threat – is just one of many reasons why the Raptors have exceeded expectations this season.
