Lucas Nogueira will remain in Spain next season with Asefa Estudiantes.
Nogueira was a first round pick in June by the Atlanta Hawks.
The Hawks have a deep frontcourt in Al Horford and Mike Scott, along with the additions of Paul Millsap, Elton Brand, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon.
“We are very encouraged by what we’ve seen from Lucas this summer,” general manager Danny Ferry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Monday. “Going back to Estudiantes will allow him to continue develop while also playing meaningful minutes against very good competition. We will closely monitor his progress as he works towards his goals as a basketball player.”

The latter of these two options ended...
