Report: Raptors Want Nerlens Noel
Sixers Big Man Nerlens Noel has been drawing interest from around the league from various teams. Before the NBA Draft the Houston Rockets offered Trevor Ariza and Patrick Beverley to the 76ers for Nerlens Noel and that offer was declined according to reports. Noel was also part of the proposed deal by the Sixers with the Celtics for the 3rd overall pick in the draft; instead the Celtics kept the pick and selected Jaylen Brown.
Today Keith Pompey of Philly.com confirms the reports of Zack Lowe of ESPN and Michael Grange about the Toronto Raptors interest in Noel.
While the Raptors trade would garner the Sixers more pieces (Terrence Ross and another asset) it comes down to how much the 76ers value Harrison Barnes.
