As a brazilian, I'm happy to

As a brazilian, I'm happy to have another player from my country in the NBA, but even if he is drafted in the first round he should wait a few years to come over from Europe. He is still young and should play for his team in Spain rather than sit on a NBA bench. Not a good pick for a team that wants something right now.

Fun fact: Both "Nene" and Nogueira's nickname "Bebe" mean baby in portuguese.

Who said he has made the NBA

Who said he has made the NBA yet. Even if he lands a roster spot this year he will have to work very hard to keep it over the next few years and show alot of progress. Does anybody know if his intentions are to play overseas for a while before committing to the NBA?

He is not ready

At this point he is not physically ready to be a factor for anytime. Potential is there, but potential gets alot of coaches fired. He is very raw offensively though he does show promise on the defensive side. I like his upside but i would have to take him late first round or early second. I saw him in the Nike Hoop Summit and he just did not appear to be ready to even compete with the best high school players in the nation. Another year overseas would help his growth.
