Lucas Riva Amarante "Bebê" Nogueira (born July 26, 1992) is a Brazilian professional basketball player who currently plays for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft by the Boston Celtics, but was later traded to the Atlanta Hawks. In 2014, his rights were traded to the Toronto Raptors.

Professional career

Liga ACB career

From 2009 to 2011, Nogueira played for the CB Estudiantes junior team. In 2011, he was loaned to CB Las Rozas for the 2011–12 season. In January 2012, he joined CB Estudiantes for the rest of the 2011–12 ACB season, and re-joined the team for the 2012–13 season as well.[1]

On 27 June 2013, the day of the NBA draft, Nogueira signed a two-year contract extension with Estudiantes.[2]

NBA career

On April 17, 2013, Nogueira officially declared for the 2013 NBA draft.[3] Because he had initially decided to declare for the 2011 NBA draft, but ultimately declined to enter it afterwards, Nogueira was not allowed to back out of the 2013 draft. He was selected with the 16th overall pick by the Boston Celtics on behalf of the Dallas Mavericks, who then traded his draft rights to the Atlanta Hawks.[4][5]

In July 2013, Nogueira joined the Atlanta Hawks for the 2013 NBA Summer League.[6]

On June 30, 2014, Nogueira's draft rights were traded, along with Louis Williams, to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for John Salmons and 2015 second round pick.[7] In July 2014, he joined the Raptors for the 2014 NBA Summer League.[8] On August 3, 2014, he signed with the Raptors.[9] On November 21, 2014, he made his NBA debut against the Milwaukee Bucks. In 8 minutes of action, he recorded 2 points, 5 rebounds and 1 steal in a blowout 124-83 victory.[10] On March 12, 2015, he was assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Development League.[11] On March 26, he was recalled by the Raptors.[12]

In July 2015, Nogueira re-joined the Raptors for the 2015 NBA Summer League. On September 29, 2015, the Raptors exercised their third-year team option on Nogueira's rookie scale contract, extending the contract through the 2016–17 season.[13]

International career

Nogueira played for the Brazilian U-19 national team at the 2011 FIBA Under-19 World Championship. He was fifth in rebounds per game and second in blocks per game.
