Moreira, 24, averaged 17.8 points and 8.2 rebounds in last year's FIBA World Cup, including 38 points vs. Australia, then 11 and 6 for SMU this past season. He played for the Clippers in the summer, in one game going for 21 points and four blocks. He then returned to FIBA competition, averaging 11 and 7 in AfroBasket. He's long and athletic, as these highlight reels, one from FIBA and one from SMU, show.
