When the Toronto Raptors tip off this season, it doesn't appear that Jonas Valanciunas will be with the team.
According to the Lithuanian Basketball official site LithuaniaBasketball.com, Valanciunas, who the Raptors took with the fifth pick in the 2011 NBA Draft will remain with his current team until the end of the season.
"I'm currently with Lietuvos Rytas and I'm not really interested in those talks, Valanciunas said. "There's a lot to be done here. I'm in Lietuvos Rytas, not the Raptors."
Club official Martynas Purlys also closed the door on the 19-year-old joining the NBA this season.
"Jonas will stay in Lietuvos Rytas until the end of the season," Rytas said. "This has been agreed and we are not going to break the agreement."
