The Toronto Raptors have come to terms on a multi-year contract extension with center Jonas Valancuinas, the team announced in a press release.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but reports have it as a four-year extension, with a player option in the final year, worth $64 million.

The 7’0” Valanciunas was the fifth overall pick in the 2011 Draft. Last season, he appeared in 80 regular season games, and averaged career-highs in points (12.0) and field goal percentage (57.2 percent), along with 8.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks.

In the four games versus the Washington Wizards this past postseason, he normed 11.3 points and 9.3 boards while making half his attempts.
