- Thomas Kelati
The only professional Eritrean basketball player in the world, Thomas Kelati was a training camp signing of the L.A. Lakers this summer. The Lakers brought in several players even when they were fully aware that they weren't going to keep any of them, so no matter how well Kelati shot the ball, he wasn't going to make the team anyway. And inevitably, he didn't. Kelati is playing for Valencia in Spain and averaging 8.1 points per game in the ACB, alongside 6.7ppg in the Eurocup.
