NBA rumors: Sixers, Nerlens Noel not talking extension

Jeff Goodman: Sixers and Nerlens Noel, as you’d expect given Philly’s frontcourt logjam, not currently talking about an extension, source told ESPN. Noel is among the 2013 first-round picks eligible for an extension by Monday’s midnight deadline, but deal is considered highly unlikely now.

Bryan Colangelo said Tuesday that the 76ers and Nerlens Noel have not discussed a contract extension. The deadline to extend contract for playing in the final of their rookie deal is Oct. 31. "It's not really something that we've discussed, given some of the concerns that I think Nerlens has had, right now," said Colangelo, the team's president of basketball operation. "There's been very little if any discussion with his agents about any extension scenarios. But, I'll just leave it at that."
It's hard to say how much Noel's displeasure factored into the lack of negotiations at this time. A source said Noel's representatives and the Sixers didn't have any serious conversations prior to his remarks. The former Kentucky standout is heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie deal. The Sixers can still make him a qualifying offer after the season, assuming there's no extension by the end of the month.
