76ers' Nerlens Noel 'ecstatic' to play with Joel Embiid


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) 76ers center Nerlens Noel said Sunday that he's "ecstatic" to play with center Joel Embiid and that he things the pairing will be "something special," NBA.com reports.

"I’m ecstatic to play with Joel," Noel said. "I think it’s going to be something special. The chemistry we already have, and we haven’t even been on the court together, is something that’s great to have.

"I think things we need to work on, me personally, I need to continue to work on the shooting and be able to spread the floor a little bit, be able to knock down a 15-footer with more consistency. And as time goes on, I think Joel’s going to be good. He already has touch around the basket, and he can extend his game out to 15-footers, so I think it’s going to be very complimentary. Both of us having the ability to pass the ball, I think that’s going to be something that people don’t know too much about that’s going to help us a lot."

Noel averaged 9.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.8 steals while shooting 46.2 percent in 75 games during his rookie season. Embiid missed the season while recovering from a foot injury.

Report: 76ers' trade discussions 'picking up'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) The 76ers aren't likely to make as many deadline deals as they did in 2014, but trade discussions with other teams have been "picking up," The Intelligencer reports.

The most likely trade scenario has the 76ers absorbing salary in order to acquire second-round picks, but they could also deal small forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute or the expiring contracts of Jason Richardson or Andrei Kirilenko.

The team reportedly likes guard Nik Stauskas, who the Kings have shown a willingness to deal before the deadline. It's possible general manager Sam Hinkie could consider a deal swapping Nerlens Noel for Stauskas and a pick, per the report, as the No. 8 pick in 2014 would provide perimeter shooting and has one more year on his deal than Noel.

Michael Carter-Williams is another player who could be on the move if an interested team is willing to meet the 76ers' asking price, according to the report.
