The Boston Celtics first round pick in 2013, Nogueira played for Asefa Estudiantes in Spain's Liga ACB since 2009.

He averaged 6.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 16.0 minutes in 18 games during the 2013-14 season, scoring in double figures 10 times.

He scored in double figures 13 times and had 10 or more assists on three occasions.

Cherry went undrafted in 2013 after a four-year career at Montana. He was a three-time All-Big Sky selection and finished as the school's all-time leader in steals with 265.
