Noel is on the move.
The Philadelphia Sixers have reportedly agreed to trade one of their young big men, but it's not the guy everyone expected to be on the move.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers have agreed to trade 22-year old Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for a 1st round pick (protected 1-18) as well as Andrew Bogut and Justin Anderson.
The NBA's trade deadline is coming at 3pm today and many believe the Sixers are still looking to trade Jahlil Okafor but it will be interesting to see how they move forward now that they've trade their former #6 overall pick.
