The Sixers are sending former first-round pick Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Justin Anderson, Andrew Bogut and a conditional first-round draft pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

“We want to wish Nerlens the best of luck in Dallas and thank him for his contributions over the last few years," Sixers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo said. "Justin Anderson is a talented, strong and defensive minded wing who will fit nicely in Brett’s system. I’m certain Justin’s toughness and edge will add a tremendous amount to our team.”

Per Wojnarowski, the Mavericks have liked Noel for a while and will try to get an extension done with him.  One big issue in trying to to move Noel has been, as Wojnarowski reported, Noel is seeking a "big number," that may have scare some teams away who don't have the cap room to re-sign him this offseason.

According to sources, the Dallas' pick is protected 1-to-18 in the June draft. The Sixers, sources told ESPN, are now working on a "landing spot" for Bogut in another trade.
