The Atlanta Hawks have added 2013 first round pick Lucas Nogueira to their summer league roster and he is expected to play in Friday's opener. Nogueira was initially left off of the roster as the team continued to work with FIBA to obtain clearance. Nogueira's status was first reported by HawksHoop's Bo Churney and a league source did confirm the report to Peachtree Hoops.
Nogueira joins fellow 2013 draft picks Dennis Schröder and Mike Muscala on the roster. Atlanta has eight total players on its summer league roster that were either drafted by the team or are under contract.
A formal announcement from the team is expected but this doesn't necessarily mean that Nogueira will be in an Atlanta uniform once the season starts but it does seem to make it more likely.
