RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Noel largely improved his numbers across the board in his second NBA season, but perhaps didnít make the dramatic leap some had anticipated. Though Noel bumped his scoring to 11.1 points per game (on 52.1% shooting from the field) and remained a valuable source of rebounds (8.1 per game), steals (1.8) and blocks (1.5), he struggled to mesh with rookie Jahlil Okafor, particularly on the offensive end. While Noel is capable of guarding stretch-four types on the perimeter, neither he nor Okafor can step out and hit jumpers, which often caused spacing issues and resulted in Noel being a non-factor on offense when Okafor was on the court and dominating the low-post touches. The inability of the two big men to coexist in addition to the impending debut of center Joel Embiid -- the No. 3 overall pick from 2014 who has missed the last two seasons following a pair of foot surgeries -- suggests that either Noel or Okafor will eventually be dealt elsewhere. Until that happens, however, the crowded 76ers frontcourt may require Noel to take on a decreased role in terms of both playing time and statistical outputs.

2015-16

After missing the entire 2013-14 season following surgery to repair a torn ACL, Noel finished third in Rookie of the Year voting and revamped the 76ers' defense last season. Through 75 games, he averaged 9.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.9 blocks, 1.8 steals, and 1.7 assists in 31 minutes per game. Noel's efficiency was a bit of a drag, as was expected from him exiting college with a unique shooting form. After working with coach Brett Brown on reconstructing the mechanics of his shot, Noel made 46 percent of his field goals and 61 percent of his free throws, the latter exhibiting a solid eight-percent improvement from his one year in college. He was the only player in the NBA to rank in the top-10 in blocks and steals. Once the Sixers moved him to center full-time and acquired point guard Ish Smith off waivers, Noel's production exploded in the second half of the season as he averaged 13.3 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.2 steals, and 2.0 blocks over the final 22 contests. His inability to step out beyond the paint and consistently nail jumpers may be magnified this season with rookie Jahlil Okafor projected to nab the starting center gig, shifting Noel to power forward and away from the basket accommodate Okafor's post game.

2014-15

Nerlens Noel is entering his rookie season in the NBA, after sitting out all of the 2013-14 season recovering from surgery to repair his torn left ACL. In his only season at Kentucky, he averaged 10.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.1 steals, and 4.4 blocks in 32 minutes per game through 24 games played. He shot 59 percent from the field on 6.9 attempts per game and 53 percent from the free-throw line on 4.3 attempts per game. Noel is a talented defensive player, having won SEC Defensive Player of the Year and All-SEC Defensive Team awards during his injury-shortened freshman season. He's the rare big man capable of recording multiple steals and blocks per game. Through five games of summer league play, he recorded 1.8 steals and 2.6 blocks per game. His overall offensive game needs improvement, but there are some signs that he could develop into an above-average offensive center. He's comfortable and willing to handle the ball with either his left or his right hand, has a quick first step on drives, and when he gets to the rim, he is a very strong finisher. However, at this point, he has no jump shot to speak of, and unless that improves, NBA defenses will allow him extra space in order to offset his ability to drive and finish. Before summer league, Noel had not played an organized game since February of 2013, so he is likely to begin the season somewhat rusty and out of shape. By the time he feels fully healthy and conditioned, whenever that may come, he's likely to provide statistical value in all formats.

2013-14

Once thought to be the unanimous No. 1 pick in mock drafts, Noel slid to the Pelicans with the sixth pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, only to get traded to the Sixers shortly after. The rookie has much to prove, as the Sixers gave up proven All-Star Jrue Holiday in the second consecutive year where the franchise invested large stakes in a center. Noel will likely return before January, and could make a solid fantasy impact, particularly in defensive categories such as steals and blocks, if owners are willing to stash him for the first few months.
