The Toronto Raptors have signed center Jonas Valanciunas to a four-year contract extension.

According to the Associated Press, the deal is worth $64 million, though details were not publicly announced.

Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri calls the 7-footer "a significant part of what we are building in Toronto."

Last season, Valanciunas averaged a career-high 12 points, and led the Raptors with 22 double-doubles, and his 8.7 rebounds per game were a team high.

The 23-year-old center was the fifth overall pick in the 2011 draft. And, in three seasons, he has averaged 10.9 points, 8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.
