Lucas Nogueira, an 18-year-old  and 7-footer ball player from Brazil, has entered the June 23, 2011 NBA draft, according to reports by several international sports sites.

Nogueira‘s name was submitted to the NBA draft through a letter by his representatives. The Brazilian teen will be using the pre-draft workout to gauge his readiness for the NBA. He has until June 14, 2011 to pull out of the draft.

Reports say that the Brazilian is currently working out to add strength to his 220-pound frame.

During the under-18 FIBA Championships in San Antonio in July 2010, Nogueira has impressed a lot of NBA executives with his athleticism and dominating presence in defense.
