A year later, Nogueira is a Toronto Raptor and he would like everyone to know he’s pretty psyched about it. “So happy,” he said. “It made me sad when the Hawks traded me. I was surprised, sad and mad. But when I heard about the trade to Toronto I'm so happy, because I know the guys from Toronto… I know a lot of staff, so I know they followed me five years ago and they believe in my game. When I heard about the trade to Toronto, that made me so happy, because I don't know, if I go to another team, I don't know if I have the same encouragement. Here, I believe in everybody and everybody believes in my game.” NBA.com
Assuming Brazilians Bruno Caboclo and Lucas Nogueira join the team for next season, as expected, the roster is nearly full, with precious little cash remaining to bring in a needed defensive-minded small forward and big rim protector. Toronto Sun
