The Toronto Raptors made a surprise move in Thursday's NBA draft, selecting Brazilian forward Bruno Caboclo with the No. 20 overall pick.

Caboclo, who didn't work out for any team, plays for E.C. Pinheiros of the NBB, the premier basketball league in Brazil.

The Raptors scouted the 6-foot-9, 200-pound Caboclo (who has a 7-foot-7 wingspan) overseas.

Caboclo averaged 4.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 16 games for Pinheiros last season. The 18-year-old was named the MVP of the 2014 Basketball Without Borders tournament in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Raptors later chose forward DeAndre Daniels 3with the 37th pick and guard Xavier Thames at 59th overall.
