A member of the Brazilian international squad, he stands out for his power, rebounding ability and presence in both zones. With extensive experience in the ACB, Lima has joined from UCAM Murcia and is one of the most important centers in the Endesa League.
He has a perfect knowledge of Spanish basketball thanks to the fact that he came through the lower ranks at Unicaja, making his debut in 2009-10. The Brazilian center has also played for C. B. Granada and UCAM Murcia. The 2014-15 campaign was when he consolidated his reputation. With 10.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and a PIR of 16.6 per game, he became the second best center in the league. He is a very agile player for his position, and an innate rebounder, who led the rankings for that statistic in 2013-14, and has an average of more than seven over the last two years.
He has a great defensive capacity, to which he adds his ability to intimidate. In addition to these qualities he also contributes a healthy dose of spectacle due to his ease and power to finish off attacking moves by slam dunking in the opponents hoop. In the 2014-15 season he was the player with the second highest number of slam dunks in the league.
