Bryan Colangelo acknowledged that the 76ers will likely trade away Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel or Joel Embiid at some point this upcoming season.
"There's no question you can look at our roster and say we have some unbalance," said Bryan Colangelo. "We're top heavy. We have some good talent there. We have to figure out what we're going to do with everybody. When you look at the calls coming in, quite frankly, everyone's trying to poach a big man from us." It's no secret that Philly has been shopping their plethora of bigs for some time now, so expect one of the aforementioned players to be wearing a different uniform next year. Jul 13 - 12:53 PM

The Raptors have moved on from trade talks involving Nerlens Noel.

The Raptors spent two first-round picks on big men, so they certainly knew they weren't bringing back Bismack Biyombo. With the 76ers saying they're going to start Ben Simmons at power forward, they are likely going to be looking to trade Noel or Jahlil Okafor.
Jul 2 - 8:54 PM

The Raptors are reportedly trying to acquire Nerlens Noel.

Toronto is reportedly offering Terrence Ross and some other lower-tier players in exchange for Noel, which doesn't seem like great value for a guy that can protect the paint like Noel. The Raptors are aware that they may lose Bismack Biyombo via free agency, and would like to install Noel as their new backup center, so Noel's fantasy value would obviously take a pretty large hit north of the boarder.

The Celtics "supposedly wanted" Nerlens Noel and Philadelphia's future first-round pick from the Lakers in exchange for the 2016 No. 3 pick, a source told Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times.

That is quite the hefty price tag and the 76ers were right to turn it down. The Lakers' pick is going to be top-three protected again next year, so it likely would've been another high lottery pick. With the 76ers saying Ben Simmons is going to play power forward, they likely have to move Noel or Jahlil Okafor.

The 76ers are reportedly offering Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington and picks Nos. 24 and 26 to the Celtics, in exchange for the No. 3 pick.

The Bulls are also pursuing the No. 3 pick and both Jimmy Butler and Jae Crowder have been mentioned in those trade discussions. We'll know soon enough whether Boston decides to part with the No. 3 pick.
Jun 23 - 7:33 PM

The 76ers are pushing harder in the trade efforts to acquire the No. 3 overall pick in Thursday's draft from the Celtics.

The 76ers have reportedly offered the Celtics either Nerlens Noel or Jahlil Okafor, but the Celtics have held out for more thus far. We could see a deal come to fruition closer to the draft Thursday night and the 76ers would presumably use the pick to select G Kris Dunn. Noel would see a bit of a boost in fantasy value in Boston, while Dunn would be a great fit in the 76ers backcourt and make for an intriguing later-round pick.
Jun 23 - 11:56 AM

The Celtics and Pelicans have reportedly reached out to the 76ers regarding the availability of Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor.

The 76ers have reportedly been trying to convince the Celtics to part ways with their No. 3 overall selection in exchange for one of the two bigs, but to this point, Boston has resisted those pitches. This is the first we're hearing of the Pelicans having interest in one of the Philly bigs, but it makes sense given that Omer Asik is currently their starting center. With Ben Simmons expected to land in Philly with the No. 1 overall selection, it seems all but certain that either Noel or Okafor will be donning a different jersey next year.
Jun 22 - 10:06 AM

The Celtics are reportedly want Nerlens Noel in exchange for the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming draft.

The 76ers are reportedly "pushing hard" to trade with the Celtics for the No. 3 overall pick so that they can draft Kris Dunn, and with Philly already expected to bring in Ben Simmons with the No. 1 overall selection, they may be more willing to part ways with Noel. Noel would be a great fit with the Celtics, and Dunn would finally provide the 76ers with a solid point guard, so it wouldn't be surprising to see something like this go down on draft night.
Jun 21 - 3:17 PM

The 76ers are shopping Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor to "at least 15 teams" for a trade, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

According to a previous report from Shams Charania of Yahoo!, the 76ers are working on a deal to send Noel to Atlanta for Jeff Teague. Noel likely has more value to a contending team and he would almost certainly start wherever he goes. He did improve on the offensive end for his pick-and-roll plays while he was playing out of position.
Jun 2 - 9:50 PM

The 76ers are reportedly exploring a trade of Nerlens Noel or Jahlil Okafor, according to ESPN's Chad Ford and Marc Stein.

This isn't a surprise. The 76ers are fully expecting Joel Embiid (foot) to be ready for opening night, so they have three bigs currently incapable of spacing the floor. Perhaps Noel is the worst of the bunch on offense and he would be due for an extension first. It's going to be very odd to see how the 76ers approach this summer in the post-process era.
May 27 - 3:42 PM

Nerlens Noel had 14 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.

Robert Covington went off for 24 points and six 3-pointers, Ish Smith added 18 points, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 8-of-11 shooting, and Nik Stauskas stepped up with 13 points and a 3-pointer in 37 minutes. Jerami Grant started, but played just 15 minutes due to foul trouble and finished with six points. The Sixers finish up at Chicago on Wednesday, so hopefully they'll continue to let the kids play in a meaningless game.
Apr 12 - 10:26 PM

The Sixers lost their final home game in overtime, despite Nerlens Noel racking up 18 points, 13 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in 42 minutes of action.

Noel made 9-of-12 field goals and didn't get to the free throw line, to the relief of many owners. This marks the second-most minutes Noel has played in a game all season, so owners can comfortably keep him locked into active lineups for Philly's upcoming two-game week.
Apr 10 - 8:03 PM

Nerlens Noel scored 17 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and no turnovers in 33 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

He was Sam Hinkie's first significant move when he was traded for Jrue Holiday on draft night in 2013. Noel looks healthy and should be out there the rest of the way, assuming he stays healthy.
Apr 8 - 11:08 PM

Nerlens Noel will start on Friday against the Knicks.

He played 18 minutes in his return, so he should get minutes in the mid 20s tonight. Elton Brand will likely back him up for this game. Noel should be owned in all leagues with the 76ers no longer having to worry about tanking.
Apr 8 - 5:32 PM

Nerlens Noel is being sued for allegedly damaging a rental home last year, according to TMZ.

He rented a 4,800 square foot home outside of Philly in September 2014 for the price of $54,000 over a one-year lease. The list of the reported damage is something, per the TMZ report: $30,000 in damage to carpets, extreme water damage throughout the home, $4,000 in damage to the stove, a broken elevator and more. A day after the lawsuit was sent, a tombstone with "RIP" written on it was on the front steps of the property. Per the report, the owners of the home believe it was Noel's doing and are considering it a death threat.
