Noel traded to Philadelphia

Welp, it was fun while it lasted but it didn’t last long. New Orleans sent Nerlens Noel and a 2014 pick to the 76ers for Jrue Holiday.

RIP to the Pelican Block Party. We hardly knew you.

    Its actually a great deal for New Orleans…..that is a HUGE haul for Noel.

    To get the Jrue Holliday and a 2014 first rounder, wow!

    I’m pretty sure Philly gets the 2014 1 round draft pick.

    Sucks for Noel. Philly hasn’t won a title in 30 years. They are a perpetually bad team.

    6 – You are correct. Initially it was reported that the 2014 first rounder was going to NOLA which would have been crazy.

    Still,Holliday is an All-Star caliber PG. To get traded for someone on that level just shows you Noel’s value.

    I am confused by the trade. I know New Orleans was shopping Noel but giving Noel and a pick for a mediocre guard. I think they could have got a better deal.
