Atlanta acquired two international standouts in last summer's draft, trading for 7-foot Brazilian center Lucas Nogueira and drafting German point guard Dennis Schroder in the middle of the first round.
While Schroder appeared in 51 games as a rookie, including two in the playoffs, the 21-year-old Nogueira remained in Spain, where he's played professionally since 2009. Nogueira is under contract with Asefa Estudiantes Madrid through next season, but according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the center is scheduled to participate with the Hawks in the Las Vegas Summer League from July 11-21. Does that mean he'll play for the Hawks next season?
