ESPN’s Mark Stein reported that the Sixers are offering Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington, pick 24 and 26 for the Celtics no. 3 pick.
This is an intriguing trade for the Celtics but it sounds like they are holding out for more. Robert Covington could start at SF and Nerlens Noel could start at C for the C’s. With Bradley, Crowder, Covington and Noel– the Celtics could have one of the top defenses in the NBA next season. Noel and Covington’s numbers would take a hit, but they would be key pieces for Boston.
