By now, we all know the 76ers are in no rush to get Nerlens Noel on the court. But they do have a plan for the rookie center.
The franchise decided that it’s important to keep the 19-year-old involved with team activities while he rehabilitates his left knee.
“I look forward to him traveling with the team,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said, “and being a part of the team and being in the team meetings and video sessions and seeing a grumpy coach and a sad player and vice versa.”
The 6-foot-11, 221-pounder won’t play until December – if at all this season – because of the anterior cruciate ligament tear he suffered during his lone season at Kentucky.
