Jonas Valanciunas’ Buyout Raised Higher – Chance For Kings At #7?

According to RealGM, Euroleague standout Jonas Valanciunas will have his buyout raised to at least $3 million dollars, higher than many anticipated.

The Lietuvos Rytas center is/was expected to be a Top 5 selection in the upcoming draft (both the Raptors and Cavs have expressed high interest) but concerns over a mildly expensive buyout could drop Valanciunas a few spots, possibly to #7 where the Kings pick.

It’s a whole different argument if the Kings are even interested in Jonas, but the buyout concerns seem to have at least taken him out of a nearly confirmed top five pick status, at least for the time being.
