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
