I tweeted this last night - Sixers make it official - announce options taken on Noel, MCW & Wroten @BBallInsiders

Tom Moore

#Sixers now have 4 players under contract next season (Embiid, Noel, MCW, Wroten) at a total of $14.3 million. #76ers #NBA

Tom Moore

No surprise with #Sixers picking up third-year options of MCW and Noel, and Wroten's fourth-year option. Today is deadline. #76ers

Bob Cooney

Sixers officially announce picking up third year options next year in MCW and Nerlens Noel, and picking up 4th year for Wroten

Derek Bodner

That sample size is really low, Pacers didn't get a whole lot of dribble penetration last night, but that defense is why Noel so valuable

Derek Bodner

The Pacers shot 16.7% (1-6) on field goal attempts around the rim while Nerlens Noel was defending the rim. #sixers

Derek Bodner

The #sixers had a 55 offensive rating when Nerlens Noel was on the court last night. Oof.

Derek Bodner

#sixers fall 103-91 to a depleted Pacers team. Tony Wroten led the way with 22 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists. Nerlens 6 pts, 10 rebds, 3 blk

Derek Bodner

The Nerlens Noel shooting display has taken a step back tonight. 2-11 from the field and 2-6 from the line.

Conrad Brunner

Nerlens Noel has been spectacularly unimpressive. Not much explosion. No flashes of anything. Just another tall skinny run and jump guy.

Keith Pompey

Noel hits two FTs to give Sixers a 59-56 lead

Keith Pompey

: #Sixers scorers: Wroten (13), Davies (10), Johnson (7),Thompson (5), Noel (4), Sims (4), Shved (4), Thomas (4). They are shooting 48 %

Bob Cooney

Sixers up 51-48 at half. Forced 12 turnovers. Shot 21-for-43. Wroten leads with 13, Davies with 10. Noel has 4 points, 5 rebounds 2 blks

Conrad Brunner

Even with Noel, not sure tonight's #Sixers have enough to win D-League. And yet they're beating the #Pacers at halftime.

Bob Cooney

One dribble and two strong steps to basket is move Noel has to perfect. That's what coaches want him to do.

Keith Pompey

Noel stat line: 4 pts, 2-2 shooting, 0-2 FT, 3 rbs, 2 blks, 1 TO. Pacers lead 38-34 with 6;36 left in half

Keith Pompey

Nice athletic put-back dunk by Noel to close the gap to four (38-34)

Derek Bodner

Nerlens block. Nerlens follow-up. This is why you watch this season.

Bob Cooney

Noel's foul shooting form has gotten so much worse since Summer League.

Derek Bodner

Disagree. Outcome doesn't matter. Let him learn how to play with foul trouble RT @Bob Cooney: Can't have Noel get quick third here

Bob Cooney

Can't have Noel get quick third here

Bob Cooney

Davies has 3, Noel 2 and Sims 2. Big man foul trouble for Sixers

Bob Cooney

Schved only available player not to see action yet. Davies, Noel and Sums all with 2 fouls, still 4 minutes to go in first.

Keith Pompey

Early line for Noel, 2 pts (1-for-1 shooting), 2 rebounds and 1 blocked shot in seven minutes.

Derek Bodner

Noel first NBA bucket, McDaniels first NBA minutes (along with JaKarr Sampson)

Candace Buckner

Nerlens Noel demands a triple team?

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 12-9 with 6:20 left in first quarter. Noel 2 fouls, Sims 2 and Davies 1.

Keith Pompey

Sims and Noel both have two fouls - not good.

Derek Bodner

Nerlens got that foul due to bad rebounding technique.

Bob Cooney

Hibbert still very hesitant on what to do with basketball down low. Noel now also has 2 fouls. 7:24 to go in first

Bob Cooney

If a Pacer finds himself going against Noel defending, a pump fake will probably do the trick. He's a little hyped

Derek Bodner

Tough matchup for Nerlens tonight. Hard to put him on Hibbert with size difference, and Scola will pull him away from hoop.

Conrad Brunner

This will be Noel's NBA regular-season debut. Missed all of last season rehabbing knee.

Conrad Brunner

#Sixers counter with Tony Wroten, Hollis Thompson, Christapher Johnson, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims.

Derek Bodner

#sixers were only team in NBA history w/a -10.6 or worse SRS and more than 15 wins. That, plus Noel vs Sims 1-on-1: libertyballers.com/the-liberty-be…

Scott Howard-Cooper

The first Rookie Ladder: 1. Nerlens Noel, 2. Jabari Parker, 3. Andrew Wiggins, 4. Elfrid Payton, 5. Nik Stauskas. on.nba.com/1wdsB5E

Candace Buckner

Also, expect Nerlens Noel to try to make a track meet out of his matchup tonight w/ Luis Scola. As Brett Brown describes, Noel "is a deer."

Alex Kennedy

I think most fans would only recognize 3 of the 10 starters in tonight's Pacers-Sixers game (Hibbert, Scola, Noel) if they walked by them.
