Raul Neto, a 6-2 point guard, was the camp's outstanding guard prospect, in my opinion. To be a starting point guard at 21 years old in the ACB is a great beginning to his professional career. He is extremely quick and crafty with his passing and displays the ability to make Steve Nash-like floaters in the lane. If Neto doesn't pull his name out by the June 17 NBA early entry deadline, it is a sure sign that he has a "promise" from a team somewhere in the second round. I heard rumblings at the end of camp that he does. ESPN.com
Point guard Raul Neto and big man Augusto Lima (pictured) each put in 14 points to lead an All-Star team in a blowout of the under-19 Serbian team. Neto did his damage as more of a scorer than a distributor, but it’s easy to see why he is a prospect teams will be keeping an eye on over the next year or two. His ability to create his own shot is to be valued, and he is able to cause havoc on the defensive end of the floor, as well. Lima was especially dominant on Day 2, after a less than inspired performance the first day. “I like to compare myself to Anderson Varejao,” Lima told me. “A lot of guys say that about me when we played together on the national team. I think in the future I’ll be able to be even more like him. I try to have more activity than him, but you know. He plays really hard. When I play with him on the international team I try to be like him, but he has much more experience so I’m not there yet.” NBCSports.com
