Our Sixers insider here for a recap of what we saw in the Orlando Summer League action over the weekend in games vs the Magic and Thunder. Sixers went 1-1 in those games, but the story of the weekend was the debut of Nerlens Noel. He hasn't played organized basketball since college and Bodner, like many of us, were impressed with how he looked on the court, like his old self from Kentucky. Bodner also reviews with Mike Gill how other rookies such as KJ McDaniels, Jermai Grant and Ronald Roberts looked. Bodner also gives his thoughts on some potential trades involving the Sixers. Check out Derek Bodner at Liberty Ballers.

Sixers color analyst Malik Rose called in to talk about the Sixers summer league action and what he thought of the NBA Draft happenings. Rose was able to see Nerlens Noel debut over the weekend and likened it to a "lion finally being released from his cage." Noel stood out in the summer league and was very impressive, athletically. Rose also said that a 'twin towers' type duo can work in the NBA today, much like it did with Tim Duncan and David Robinson when Rose played with them in San Antonio.
Covering the Sixers for CSN Philly and CSNPhilly.com. Gonzo talked about his thoughts from the action over the weekend and the overall plan moving forward with the Sixers. Gonzo made an interesting point in that now the Sixers off season is really like their regular season with how the draft goes and what trades and free agency rumors are out there. Gonzo tells the people that we all know the Sixers arent going to win 'now' so they are just taking the 'safe route' with players like Noel and Joel Embiid.
