Veteran power forward Joao Santos is back once again with the National Team and hoping he can find the kind of form and influence which witnessed him harvest an excellent 11.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per game at EuroBasket 2007 in Spain. One of the few players on the roster to have played in top European leagues, Santos has spent four seasons playing in the ACB and a year in the Greek league. He has well over a decade of experiences to draw upon and his leadership will be absolutely vital if Portugal want to emerge from the Additional Qualifying Round and compete in Lithuania. Santos is most at home on the perimeter rather than in the paint since he is a terrific outside shooter. This dimension makes him a valuable asset, although he still makes sure he gets inside and works hard on the glass too.
