Noel has spent the last season and a half with the Dallas Mavericks, where he averaged a combined 6.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, and a steal per contest.
The former Wildcat played in just 30 games last season, starting just six of them. He averaged a career-low 15.7 minutes per game.
Each team in contention has another former Kentucky player on the roster, with Washington having John Wall, the Lakers having Julius Randle, the Thunder having Patrick Patterson, Dakari Johnson, and Hamidou Diallo, and the Pelicans with DeMarcus Cousins (for now), Anthony Davis, and Darius Miller.
