Bruno Caboclo has been playing basketball since he was 13. The Brazillian professional b-baller started off at Gremio Recreativo Barueri. Before he joined the NBA, he blazed for Brazil’s Esporte Clube Pinheiros, which was between 2013-2014.
Beyond his career and bio, the following covers details of his family, height, and body measurements.
Who Is Bruno Caboclo?
He was born on September 21, 1995. While he was birthed in Osasco, he was brought up in Barueri and Pirapora do Bom Jesus both located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Not much is known about Bruno’s upbringing and early life.
However, it is common knowledge that he began his professional career in 2013 when he signed a contract with the Pinheiros of the Novo Basquete Brasil (NBB). This handed him the opportunity he’s been craving to improve his skills and become more competitive. With the Pinheiros, he played 17 games between 2013 and 2014 and was able to average 3.1 rebounds and 4.8 points.
It was sometime in June 2014 that Bruno Caboclo started his journey in the NBA. This was after he was selected by the Toronto Raptors as the 20th overall pick in the year’s draft. The following month, he was able to sign a deal that saw him join the team for the NBA Summer League of the year. A few months later, he made his NBA debut in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Even though he was quite impressive in the little time he played in the game, Caboclo got assigned to the NBA Development League to play for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. He would be recalled, reassigned and again recalled by the Raptors. The team refused to let him go until February 2018 when he was traded off to the Sacramento Kings for Malachi Richardson.
The Kings wasted no time in assigning the Brazilian to its Reno Bighorns of the NBA G League. He was however recalled after 48 hours. But as fate would have it, his stay with the side was a short one. In August 2018, Bruno Caboclo joined the Houston Rockets following a training camp contract he inked. Unfortunately, he was waived in October only for him to find himself with the team’s G League side – the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Thus far, the biggest accomplishment of his professional career is the NBA D-League championship which he bagged in 2017.
His Height, Weight, and Body Measurements
Like in every other sport, this handball game requires its players to possess and maintain certain body features which are generally regarded as one of the factors that determine a player’s performance. Whereas basketballers aren’t expected to be heavily built, they are required to have a bodyweight that’s proportional to their height.
As far as physical fitness is concerned, it is difficult to find a fault with Bruno Caboclo. Even though he is 6 feet 9 inches tall (2.06 m) and weighs 218 lb (98 kg), his flexibility hasn’t been sloppy as one may anticipate. Beyond that, his wingspan of 2.31 m is one of the features that stands the Brazilian apart from other basketballers. Bruno’s standing leap of 34 inches also complements his 9 foot 3 inches standing reach.
The basketballer’s full name is Bruno Correa Fernandes Caboclo. It is said that his maternal name is Fernandes and Caboclo, his paternal name. In all, details about his family life have been hard to come by. There are only a handful of things that are known about him in this regard. It is said that he hails from a poor family, that his father worked as a security guard and a truck driver while his mother supported the family serving as a maid.
Bruno once disclosed that his family was so poor they couldn’t even afford a cable to watch NBA games. Nothing is known about his siblings, it is not even known if he has any. He is one of the very few players with scanty information about their family.
As one would expect, Bruno Caboclo’s fans and admirers are very much interested in knowing what’s up with his love life. This hasn’t made the basketballer disclose anything about his relationship status. Like with his family, nothing is known about his love life, it’s as though he’s concentrating on reaching greater heights in his career at the moment.
