76ers Trade Noel to Mavs
Before the trade deadline hit the Mavericks pulled off a deal for Nerlens Noel in exchange for Andrew Bogut, Justin Andrews, and a conditional first round pick. The Mavericks gained a young 22-year-old center piece to put next to Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki.
Noels athletic ability is being badly needed for the Mavs due to their aging roster. For the 76ers this trade really doesn’t make sense.
They get Anderson who has taken a huge step back from last year, and they get Andrew Bogut. The real question here is what will the 76ers do with Okafor who they were trying to move but didn’t. In the long run this deal could work out to be ok for the 76ers if they get a top pick, and Noel turns out to keep getting injured.
