Noel does not seem to sit well with the rest of his team, as a matter of fact, they are no longer thrilled with his actions. It even caused frustrations for others. That is why a trade must happen soon. Basketball Insiders shared that a trade is most likely to happen this year, however, Noel is one of the names to watch out for.
As stated, “The Philadelphia 76ers have conceded that center Nerlens Noel will not be part of the rotation going forward, at least for the time being. Noel has changed agents recently, and his representation and the 76ers are working together toward a trade and a solution. While there is some urgency to getting the public dispute resolved, there is not a sense that a trade is close.”
It was also mentioned that the Toronto Raptors shows a big interest in having Noel in their team. The Portland Trail Blazers is said to have eyes on Noel as well, but they are unlikely to give up much just to have him.
Meanwhile, Jobs & Hire reported that there are rumors that Los Angeles Lakers is interested in acquiring Noel.
