    There should be a mini tournament between Mexico, Jamaica, Colombia and Paraguay or Chile.

    Of course... thats what they should do...

    Mexico, Jamaica, Paraguay and Colombia...

    Round Robin between them and top 2 (If both Cuba and USA decide not to go) or 1st place (If just one of them No Go) advance to FIBA Americas...

    Obviously if both of them GO... then we are wasting our time here.. lol

    Good list. Nice to see some new and talented faces like Vitor Benite(1,90 PG), Augusto Lima(2,07 PF), Douglas Nunes(2,08 PF) and Rafael Hettsheimeir(2,08 C). Larry Taylor gives us more depth in the rotation.

    Some other names out of the list: Olivinha,JP Baptista, Murilo Becker, Rafael Araújo, Jonathan Tavernari...

    If all the player are available it will look like:

    PG - M.Huertas - Larry Taylor
    SG - Leandrinho Barbosa - Marcelo Machado - Alex Garcia
    SF - Giovanonni - Marquinhos Vinicius
    PF - Varejao - Splitter -
    C - Nene - Paulão Prestes

    And one more player to complete the 12 men list...probably a PF-C (Hettsheimer, Caio Torres, Augusto Lima, Douglas Nunes) or maybe a third point guard(nezinho, benite..)

    I liked Magnano's choices a lot. He sure knows what he is doing. But so far this is just a list. Unfortunally I think we won't see all of the players in the tournament.

    My guess to final list:

    Huertas - Nezinho - Raulzinho
    Marcelinho - Vitor Benite
    Alex - Marquinhos
    Guilherme Giovannoni - Rafael Hett - Augusto Lima
    Splitter - Paulão

    I considered difficult to Larry become a brazilian citizen on time and unlikely the participation of Varejão, Nenê and Leandrinho.

    But still, a nice NT IMHO.

    Murilo out, Shamell too...

    the first one is injuried (Caio come to replace), and Shamell Stallworth did not a good season.

    Diego always was a good potential, i like him.. but probably will be cut.

    Arthur was fundamental to Brasília in championship of New Basketball Brazil. Good take.

    Benite and Douglas Nunes are both young and they had a great national championship this year, for me they deserve to stay in 12 final list.

    Nene, Varejao, Barbosa and Augusto Lima, i dont know, i think they will not come... with or without nba's lockout.

    Paulão Prestes told yesterday, he will comes, nice news. Hettsheimeir i dont know too, but I support him, he could be a very important player to us.

    The biggest surprise was Larry Taylor, he plays here in Brazil since 2008, speak a good portuguese. He's an very athletic guard, with him on the roster, the problem with Huertas backup is solved/fixed.

    It is disgusting to make a foreigner player apply for a double citzenship just to have him playing for our national team.

    I think that Barea will kill this tournament with Piwi, Galindo, Vassallo and Peavy

    Anderson Varejão won't play the tournament (ankle injury), but he will present himself to the NT and support the other players. Link (in portuguese)

    So now Brazil has naturalized players. That leaves Lithuania, China and Argentina the only top-25 NTs to never having used naturalized players and/or players born abroad.
    aim low, score high

    I don't really have a problem with it if the player can show some heritage or if the player shows a tremendous amount of allegiance to his adopted country. Brazil really doesn't need to naturalize players. They've got such a huge talent pool.

    I like that there are quite a few names I don't recognize. It's great to see that Machado is still on the list. I would have thought that maybe the coach wouldn't bring him in.
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    Hope this naturalized players thing dont get out of control...

    Brazil need a good backup to Huertas, and we dont have this... but with Larry, can be good.

    he's not 100% naturalized, he's naturalization is WIP.
