Lima has played previously professionally also in Italy and Spain (Unicaja Malaga and CB Granada). The scouts decsribe him following way:
An inside player with huge upside. He's long, has great body (Dwight Howard type), he's a great leaper. Intense and aggressive, Augusto can be very dominant inside, and very active on both boards, snatching rebounds and blocking shots. He understands the game very well and knows how to position himself on the court. A great 1 on 1 defender, has good mobility, runs the court like a guard and finishes every play aggressively. Offensively, he has good post moves, decent outside shot and good presence inside to receive passes. Needs to add some weight and polish his offensive skills, but future is bright.
