Andres Nocioni

Andres Marcelo Nocioni is an Argentine professional basketball player for the NBA's Sacramento Kings, and for the Argentine national team. Nocioni won a gold medal with the Argentine national team at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. In the 2008 Summer Olympics, he helped the Argentine national team win the bronze medal. His natural position is small forward, though in the NBA he has played some minutes at power forward.

Nocioni's professional career began in the Argentine basketball league (LNB) in the 1995–96 season, and in 1998–99 he was already named Best Sixth Man. In 2001, Nocioni went to Vitoria-Gasteiz, where he spent three seasons as a refuerzo (reinforcement player) with Spain's TAU Ceramica of the ACB Spanish professional league. He was the league's 2004 Most Valuable Player and his stellar play earned him an All-Euroleague Second Team selection in 2003 and 2004.

After winning the gold medal at the 2004 Olympics, Nocioni was signed as an undrafted rookie free-agent by the Bulls. Two of his countrymen, Manu Ginobili and Carlos Delfino, were also in the NBA at the time.
