Elvis Evora
U.D. Oliveirense (LPB) strengthened their roster with addition of 37-year old former Portuguese international center Elvis Evora (205-115kg-78). He has a double citizenship as he also holds Cape Verdean passport. Evora played most recently at Maia Basket (LPB). In 8 games he recorded 14.0ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.5apg and 1.1bpg last season.
Evora received Eurobasket.com All-Portuguese League Honorable Mention award in 2011 and 2015.
The previous (13-14) season he played at Interclube (Division I) in Angolan league.
In 12-13 season Evora played at Sport Lisboa Benfica. In 30 games he averaged 7.2ppg and 4.5rpg in 2012-13 season. He helped them to win the league title and the cup. He also represented Portugal at the Qualifications to European Championships 2013 three years ago. His stats at that event were 8 games: 1.4ppg, 1.0rpg.
Evora has played previously professionally in Spain (Tenerife and Gandia Basquet) and Portugal (Ovarense and FC Porto Ferpinta).
He is close to retirement age as a player. It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at Oliveirense.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Powerful center who can play power-forward too. Very strong he shoots from the outside and it's a great defender. Watch out this guy!!!.
