Even in the wake of potentially being the number one pick in tomorrow night’s NBA Draft, Nerlens Noel couldn’t avoid being asked about the likely departure of his former Kentucky teammate Kyle Wiltjer. Noel chimed in with his opinion in support of Wiltjer, “He wants to go somewhere where he’s the focal point of the team. That’s definitely understandable.” Noel shared that information with Adam Zagoria, as well as a few updates on his pre-draft health status.
Noel now says he weighs 217 lbs. but wants to “put on weight gradually.” Noel also says he expects to be ready in October, but more likely by November.
