The Philadelphia 76ers have three young prospects that play the center position. Joel Embiid has shined in the role and it appears to be his job to lose going forward. That makes it more complicated for Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor to have a noteworthy spot in the 76ers starting lineup.
Sporting News reports the Los Angeles Lakers have expressed interest in trading for Noel.
“The Lakers have inserted themselves on trade talks this season and will continue to do so. They had talks with Atlanta about Paul Millsap and expressed interest in Nerlens Noel, if the Sixers decide to go ahead with a deal for him.”
Millsap is apparently off the trade block making Noel the likely option.
