Keep an eye on Angolan guard Carlos Morais, whose 24-point performance (despite 10 turnovers) against the US could get him drafted by an NBA team next year. The 22-year-old plays professionally for Petro Atleticode Luandu.

From Boston Globe (http://www.boston.com/sports/basketball/articles/2008/08/17/points_in_transition/?page=3)

He certainly made a name for himself after his performance against team USA. Not everyone can score 24 points against team USA, and Carlos Marais certainly achieved it with his terrific 3 point shooting. I am not sure if he'll be anything good in the NBA, but I think he'll certainly have a shot to prove himself in the NBA. He even went to college here in the United States, so he is familiar already in playing with Americans.

What do you all think about Carlos Marais? How well will he perform in the NBA in the case that he does make an NBA team's roster?
