Default Sixers to introduce draft pick Nerlens Noel

The Sixers acquired the rights to Noel, the sixth overall pick in the June 27 NBA draft, in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans for all-star point guard Jrue Holiday on draft day. The trade became official on July 12. Noel, a 6-foot-11, 206-pounder who left Kentucky after one season, was a candidate for the first overall pick before slipping to sixth. He won't be ready to play until December at the earliest after suffering a season-ending anterior cruciate ligament tear in his left knee.
