The list of other players, who all have Cuban passport but never been selected to any of Cuban national teams:

   #1. Howard Sant-Roos (200-F-91, currently plays in Czech Republic) led CEZ Nymburk to a victory over the second-ranked BK Pardubice (20-5) 100-94 in the Czech Republic NBL in Saturday night's game.

Diaz is another player who holds two passports: Cuban and American. Strangely he has never played in Cuba.

   #4.
