    Damn. Nerlens would look solid with James, but we are just playing way too well to risk any significant dealings unless it is for a superstar.

    If I were in his position I would be just as frustrated. The 76ers need to move Okafor or Noel, they'll be better off moving Okafor to Noel can cover up Embiid but they're still too young a team to really weigh out all the options available. Don't know if another team that would be willing to give up that many players to get Okafor, I'm sure the 76ers are looking to get a high draft pick out of him or some young prospects.

    In a rare occurrence of pity for millionaire basketball players, I actually feel bad for Nerlens Noel. . . . And I hope they trade him to us for Brewer and rights to .. nah, just Brewer.

    On second thought, I'm feeling generous, If they want 3 Centers then they should trade him to New Orleans for Asik. He doesn't need big minutes and Davis and Noel can become the latest line of Twin Towers. Trying to help out NO cause I love that town!

    I don't blame Noel. He should continue the tirade until they trade him.

    Just a stupid situation for the Sixers to be in.

    Na I rather have Brew at this point. He may not do anything well but he's been solid on D and runs the floor extremely great. He's a poor mans Shawn Marion

    To me it looks like he's trying hard to lower his value, this may help teams with few/bad assets like...the Mavs.

    Will be interesting to see what Ainge does though, if he's going after him or he's going to wait for Boogie.

    I think consciously wanting a potential attitude problem on your team is not a good idea

    I completely understand why he is mad.

    He's not going to be getting many minutes or much of a role in his contract year. He was the first pick brought in and they have given up on him for Okafor and Embiid.

    Nerlens is going to Noel.

    Send him to Atlanta with Brewer
    Millsap to Houston
    Anderson to 76ers.

    Not sure if it works but that seems nice. ;)

    Another player who thinks he's better than what he is.
    Role player demanding playing time
    Another role player who'll demand a max contract in the offseason
    "Research not good"
    "Reports not good"
    "Doesn't carry himself well"
    "Bad habits"

    You can have him Danny.

    doubt it works/would happen, but wonder if we could make a 3 way where Noel ends up it ATL, and Korver comes to HOU.
