2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Lucas Nogueira


Position: Center

Size: 7-0, 220

School: Brazil, 1992


Strengths:
  • Size
  • Length
  • Shot blocking
  • Alters shots at the rim
  • Terrific help side defender
  • Offensive rebounder
  • Athleticism
  • Runs the floor well
  • Finishing at the rim in pick-and-roll situations
  • Potential




  • Weaknesses:
  • Limited offensively to around the hoop
  • Ball handling
  • Passing ability/toughness
  • Strength/physicality
  • Assertive on the defensive glass


  • Summary: Nogueira has been on NBA scout's radars for the past few years and decided to stay in the 2013 NBA Draft. He is still very much a work in progress, especially on the offensive end, but because of his combination of size, length, and athleticism, he has the tools to be at the very least a rim protecting big man in the NBA. Nogueira's stock has been rising as of late, and he could end up being selected in the late lottery even though he will likely stay overseas for at least another year.

    Player Comparison: Larry Sanders. Sanders emerged as one of the better shot blockers in the NBA this past season and that's probably where Nogueira's ceiling is. He has a long way to go with offensive game, which is still an area of weakness for Sanders.
