    What do you guys think is Nerlens Noel's ceiling? I like the kid and think he has the potential to become a lesser Lamarcus Aldridge

    Doesn't look like a guy who can get Aldridge's offensive game. I think he could be like DeAndre Jordan, but less physically dominant.

    Not sure about his ceiling, but he will be perpetually underrated and under-appreciated because of Davis.

    His ceiling is through the roof. It's unattainable.

    He has already hit his ceiling with that high top fade

    Going to agree with the other posters, Tyson Chandler or DeAndre Jordan-lite. It really depends on his amount of motivation and how well he coexists with Joel Embiid (also this is assuming that Hinkie doesn't move either or both to get more established players.

    I would hope he would average more points to be somewhat compared to Aldridge. Hopefully Noel doesn't have a career similar to Tyrus Thomas..

    No clue. Haven't seen a single game of his. Does he project as a center or PF?
