New, comments

The rumours have been bouncing around all day, but numbers (and a Woj Bomb) are now out there.

First came the news that Jonas Valanciunas had left the Lithuanian national team to return to Toronto. Then came the rumours of contract numbers and medical tests. Today, it appears a deal between Toronto and Valanciunas has been reached.

We'll give Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski the honour of reporting the news:

There it is. Four years, somewhere in the range of $64-70 million. [Edit: the fourth year is a player option.] For Valanciunas, at seven feet tall and 23 years old, coming off a year that saw him post averages of 12.0 points (on 57 percent shooting) and 8.7 rebounds with plenty of potential to improve, it feels like money well spent.

What do you guys think of the deal?

UPDATE: It's been confirmed that the deal is for a flat $64 million over 4 years. No bonuses.
