    Yea no way he resigns there.

    I think a reallllly good fit would be Milwaukee. And he would be dangerous there. He also seems to fit their m.o of long athletic types

    It seems that everyone aside from the point guards have near 7 foot wing spans on that team. I think they would give a team that relies on a length advantage like the spurs fits in the playoffs. Too bad they are in different conferences.

    Did it end ugly with the sixers? I thought they just traded him because he wasnt panning out for them and was behind other highly drafted big guys.

    I mustve missed that story

    “The research teams have done on him is not good,” Wojnarowski said on his podcast. “They don’t get good reports back on their intel, how he’s carried himself there, of his habits. It’s not a great return. There are teams willing to do a deal for him and bring him in, but they don’t want to give up much. And so at some point there, Philly has got to make a decision, ‘What’s the best we can get for him?’ I think at some point he probably moves, too.”

    Holy snap! No wonder rick is benching him and they dont think he has a good work ethic. This is the type of guy that you dont want near a developing team with young talent trying to find an identity.

    Dude’s next chance after dallas might be his last real chance to make it in this league before he starts bouncing around teams on minimum contracts

    I guarantee you Harden could make Noel better than Capela.

    Not possible with low iq players, especially with an ego

    Have you seen Capela when he was a rookie vs now?

    In terms of talent and physical stats Noel has a lot of edge over Capela. However Capela has great work ethic and bball IQ, both things Noel apparently lack. So no, even if Harden was with the Mavs he wouldn't be able to make Noel better. More likely Noel will be too out of shape or won't put out the effort necessary to catch the lobs Harden tosses out.

    It's all good between Nerlens Noel and Rick Carlisle.
