NBA Trade Rumors: 76ers may trade Nerlens Noel to Magic’s Victor Oladipo
NBA trade rumors seem to be going viral. For the last several weeks rumors about one team going for one player or the other or a side trying to find a better player for the team are spreading thick and fast.
But there are some players and teams that attract a lot more attention than the others. The teams that are not doing well seem to be more involved in playersâ€™ trade as they want to get rid of non-performers and acquire some good hands instead.
If rumors doing the rounds are to be believed Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers, could use a trade to strengthen their teams. A report in the Yibida.com claims that the Philadelphia 76ers could possibly trade Nerlens Noel to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Victor Oladipo.
There is no denying the fact that the Orlando Magic is full of guards and could use another player to fortify their front court. With Shabazz Napier, Evan Fournier, Elfrid Payton and CJ Miles, the Magic are loaded with guards who are playing well. A front court consisting of Tobias Harris, Nerlens Noel, and Nikola Vucevic could be a great front court for the Magic.
On the other hand, the Sixers seem to be in dire need of more guards as Tony Wroten has been injured since last year and has yet to play a game this season. Noel is having a bumpy start to the season and moving him would be beneficial for the Philadelphia 76ers. Nerlens Noel would be an impeccable fit for the Orlando Magic. Noel has the capability to be the Defensive Player of the Year and he would excel in the Orlando Magic system. With Okafor as a low post presence and Oladipo as a scoring presence, the Philadelphia 76ers can actually conquest matches. Oladipo is a great scorer and Okafor would match his game well. Meanwhile more details about them are awaited.
