In addition to shot blocking, one of the most obvious strengths of Nogueira's game is his rebounding ability. He is an explosive leaper who can go up and get the ball.
He has an incredible motor which will endear himself to teams looking to develop the young big man. He has drawn comparisons to Kentucky freshman and consensus top pick, Nerlens Noel.

For a seven-footer, he is still light. He needs to add some weigh, along with some strength, if he plans to be a legitimate post-presence in the NBA. Nogueira also needs to work on his offensive game. He is raw but a little strength should help him hold his own on the inside.
Fit with 76ers:
Philadelphia is reportedly interested in taking the Brazilian with the 11th overall pick. The teams immediately following the Sixers are also heavily interested in Nogueira, who is rapidly climbing draft boards. Many experts do not think that Nogueira makes it past the Utah Jazz at 14th overall.
The draft will take place at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night.
