Career: SRE Ipiranga (Brazil, 1999-2000), Araba Gorago (Spain-EBA, 2000-01), Bilbao Basket (Spain-LEB2, 2001-03), Tau Vitoria (Spain-ACB, 2003-06).

Known by many in the basketball world since he was 16, Splitter has undoubtedly been the most highlighted Brazilian prospect ever. Even though he could have easily applied for the draft and been selected in the first round at age 18, he chose to learn the European game before trying the NBA, where he probably belongs. Splitter has been improving this year. He was a key factor on an ambitious Tau team which made it back to the Euroleague Final Four.
Extremely quick and pretty athletic for a big man, he can score in a split second and steal the ball on the next play. As talented as he is, Splitter rarely, if ever, acts selfishly on the court. He has yet to take more than 10 shots in a Euroleague game. At Vitoria, he benefited from playing alongside Argentinian star big man Luis Scola. But Splitter will probably shine a lot more once he moves to another team. He proved at last year's FIBA Americas Championship that he can be a great rebounder, following that up with a couple of 11-rebound games with Tau this season.
