Who is Rafael Hettsheimeir? He is a 6-foot-10 big out of Brazil who can ball. Maybe. We think.
Mavs GM Donnie Nelson always has loved him some foreign born ballers, and this would certainly fit that description.
Hettsheimeir has played recently for CAI Zaragoza in Spain. According to this story on FIBA.com, he recently had knee surgery that will require him to miss the Summer Olympics.
Here are are some highlights of Hettsheimeir working on Rockets forward Luis Scola in an international game years ago.
First thoughts? Big dude. Skilled. Slow.
