WTF! EX-SIXER NERLENS NOEL REPORTEDLY NIXED $17.M A YEAR!

By Michael Bennett

WTF!

Literally!

According to Yahoo Sports, Nerlens Noel, the Sixers’ No. 1 draft pick in 2013 whom they traded last February to the Mavs, has turned down $17.5 million in free agency.

Noel has been the best free agent available for a while, and it doesn’t appear the restricted Mavericks center will strike a deal any time soon. He just hired Rich Paul, who’s default negotiation tactic is waiting.

Noel is said to desire the max, which, who wouldn’t? We don’t know what he’d actually settle for. But now we have an idea what Dallas is offering.

How many years? More importantly, how much is guaranteed? Is the offer still on the table?

Granted, a fully guaranteed deal worth $17.5 million annually – no matter its length – looks good for Noel. It’s hard to see another team offering more at this point, and that’d trump his $4,187,599 qualifying offer – especially given Noel’s injury history.
