    “In Puerto Rico there are a little less than 4 million people. However we estimate that in the continental US there should be around 5 million people with Puerto Rican heritage. We want to identify the basketball talents that do not live on the island and offer them the opportunity to represent Puerto Rico in the different international competitions” said Mr. Carlos Beltran, President of the Puerto Rico Basketball Federation.
