Nogueira, from  Brazil, is 20 years old and has shown his skills in international competitions and in the Spanish league.

At 7'0' and 220 pounds, he would provide a potential complement to Al Horford in Atlanta, a team that is pretty much starting from scratch with so many open roster spots and salary cap space.

Atlanta originally had the 17th and 18th picks in this draft.
