Nogueira to Stay in Spain

Bo Churney —  August 12, 2013

The AJC’s Chris Vivlamore has reported that Lucas Nogueira will spend this season playing in Spain.

This isn’t an unexpected move. Lucas still has a lot of developing to do and Elton Brand and Gustavo Ayon will act as suitable alternatives until Nogueira can come over.

Atlanta’s second-round pick, Mike Muscala, will also play in Spain this season. Dennis Schröder has already been signed by the club. For some analysis of Nogueira’s play with the Hawks’ Summer League team, click here and here.

  1. @ColePatty ‘s tweet: One day you’ll be entertaining me. Stuck in Spain, but you’ll always be my Bebe. Do Do Doop. Do Do Doop Do Doop Da Dum.

  2. This is definitely a good move. Bebe gets to develop on someone else’s dime. Plus, this delays when he can be come a Restricted Free Agent by at least a year.

    It also makes it more likely that when he does make the team, he will be immediately ready to contribute.
