Bogut, Anderson traded to Sixers for Nerlens Noel

Philadelphia 76ers forward Nerlens Noel (4) and center Jahlil Okafor (8) celebrate a score against the Los Angeles Lakers during the second half at Wells Fargo Center, Dec. 1, 2015.

More so than just breaking up passing lanes and protecting the paint with quick strides across the lane as a help defender, Noel has great versatility thanks to how much lateral quickness and mobility he has. And with another contributor to add to their emerging young core now on the roster, the Mavericks believe they picked up a building block for the future. He tells ESPN that he's may request a buyout if he's not traded to another team. The team must sign an expensive free agent at a time when they still can not compete.

Rookie Ben Simmons, who has yet to play this season due to a fractured right foot, is scheduled to undergo a CT scan Thursday to determine if the foot is fully healed. The Sixers are clearly a better team without him. We thank Justin for his hard work and commitment to the Dallas Mavericks' culture, and wish him the best.

After this season Nerlens Noel, who is still only 22 years old, will be a restricted free agent. In his four seasons with Golden State from 2012-16, he averaged 6.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.7 blocks per game.

When Noel returned, Brown stayed loyal to Okafor, benching the most defensive-minded of his three centers in lieu of the second-year player with a solid offensive game, but little ability to defend and, seemingly, even less desire. The Mavericks recently signed Ferrell to a long-term contract.

Trump's First Month 'Achieving Results For American People:' White House
Flynn told Pence that he had not spoken about sanctions with Kislyak, an assertion that Pence later repeated on television. That's one reason investigators keep asking what contacts the Trump team had with Russian Federation before the election.

So the 76ers essentially acquired two 2nd round picks and Justin Anderson.

The team seemingly was tired about letting Nerlens Noel enter free agency, where he was expected to sign a large offer sheet. "He's young, got a lot of potential".

Noel is a gifted athlete who will be used to protect the rim in Dallas. I think that's what they were looking for. Often times doing that can be painful because when you go younger, it's hard to win.

Either that or they just really, really love Justin Anderson. The Sixers did get some good assets in return. We don't play to lose.

In December, Colangelo said, "I will not make a bad deal for this organization".
