Nerlens Noel finished off the preseason with a quiet 18 minutes, producing just two points, four rebounds, a steal and a block.
Noel only took two shots, continuing a worrisome trend that began upon his arrival in Dallas. He was supposed to be unleashed away from the Sixers’ frontcourt logjam but didn’t get a ton of work on offense. Noel should still produce middle-round numbers on the back of his defense but owners can’t be thrilled with a quiet preseason.
