Lucas Nogueira is ready to learn his NBA future. At last. Without further delay. The moment has been two years and, as of Thursday night, three drafts in coming. He was in the 2011 field, then withdrew just before the deadline. He stayed out last year. Now, after several calendars worth of scrutiny from front offices, Nogueira will hear his name called in the first round, maybe as high the teens, as the selections unfold at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. “He feels like in the past two years he needed to grow in several different areas,” Nogueira’s agent, Aylton Tesch, said. “His maturity, his knowledge for the game. And after the season that he had, he feels like he has accomplished some of it and he feels ready mentally to take the next step.” NBA.com

The Philadelphia 76ers are one of several teams that are interested in acquiring a late first-round pick, according to sources close to the situation. If Philadelphia doesn’t select a center with the 11th pick, they may try to acquire one of the final picks in the first round to select a big. In recent weeks, they have expressed interest in a number of centers projected in that range such as Brazilian center Lucas Nogueira and French center Mouhammadou Jaiteh among others. HoopsWorld
