Toronto Raptors centre Jonas Valanciunas has been named the 2012 FIBA Europe Young Men's Player of the Year for the second straight year.

Valanciunas eclipsed other nominations in the field which was voted on by selected journalists and fans, easily seeing off Croatia's Dario Saric and France's Leo Westermann, who finished second and third respectively.

Opting to stay in Europe during the NBA lockout, Valanciunas made a seamless transition to becoming a regular starter in senior men's basketball, being named as Eurocup Rising Star; earning a spot in the Lithuanian League All-Star Game; whilst also being announced as a member of the All-Eurocup squad.

He 21-year-old then capped his year off with a move to Toronto where he has been gaining regular minutes with the Raptors.
