Carlos Morais is not a household name in North America, but he is a large part of the reason Angola has become one of the best teams in Africa. Morais, a point guard, led Angola to the AfroBasket championship this summer and was named tournament MVP averaging 15.9 points per game.

Now he’s going to get a look at life in the NBA.

The Toronto Raptors have invited Morais to their training camp, reports the Toronto Sun. This is a non-guaranteed contract.

It’s a longshot but he could potentially make the roster as Toronto cut loose veteran Quentin Richardson. Morais, Julyan Stone and Chris Wright will try to prove they deserve that spot.

    As an Angolan, I am pleased. Sign that man!
