Noel made his debut that next season where he would miss just 22 games over the next two years.
So the 76ers essentially acquired two 2nd round picks and Justin Anderson.
Noel averaged 10.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.4 blocks per game in his one standout collegiate season with Kentucky before being picked No. 6 overall in the 2013 draft. But again, why even trade Noel when he hasn't really had a chance to play alongside Embiid?
This season, though, the Sixers entered camp with a crowded front court group featuring Noel, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor, Dario Saric and Richaun Holmes. "We'll move forward with that player starting hopefully tomorrow or the day after that".
Meanwhile, Noel can go a long way to furthering the Mavs' improved defense.
Plus, when Colangelo arrived last April, there were only two games left in the regular season.
Payne's playing time since returning from a foot injury has been sporadic behind Russell Westbrook.
Yes, Anderson has been brutal at times for the Mavericks this season, but time will tell what he can turn into. Does it bring up any memories of Jae Crowder to Mavs fans? He averaged 5.1 points and 2.7 rebounds with Dallas during this 106 games with the team.
For Philly, Nelson said that they "liked Anderson a lot and that he was the critical piece" for them in the deal.
In exchange, Dallas picks up forward Nerlens Noel from the 76ers, according to ESPN.
While it might not be a surprise to see Philadelphia shipping away one of its bigs, a Noel trade has some shocking elements attached to it. Will he take the next step in his career and haunt Dallas like the ghost of Jae Crowder?
When the 3 p.m. deadline on Thursday passed and Okafor was still a Sixer, the former Duke standout finally had some peace of mind. So, for him, I want him to stay in the process of being a threat to score on offense and, off of that, being able to make plays, get other people set up.
