According to a report from Mike Fisher of DallasBasketball.com, there are multiple teams who are willing to offer Nerlens Noel a max contract this offseason.
That would be quite the haul for Noel, who has plenty of defensive acumen but needs to polish his offensive game while managing to stay healthy. He’s a restricted free agent so Dallas would have the chance to match any offers, and considering they didn’t give up assets to get the 23-year old center as a rental it’s likely that they’ll match no matter what. It’s long been expected that the Mavs intend to have him as part of the core going forward and they shouldn’t expect any discounts coming their way.
