It appears that first-round draft pick center Lucas Nogueira will return to Spain for another season. I’m told that the Hawks’ waiver claim pick up of forward/center Gustavo Ayon “most likely” means that Nogueira will get another year overseas to work on his game and build his body.
Nogueira, who turned 20 this month, would have to fight for playing time in a crowded frontcourt that includes Al Horford, Paul Millsap, Elton Brand, Pero Antic, Mike Scott (non-guaranteed) and Ayon.
