NBA Draft 2013 New Orleans Pelicans Nerlens Noel pick #6

After falling on the court to injury last season Nerlens Noel once again fell, this time, out of the top five of the NBA Draft. But with that being said he was chosen number six by the New Orleans Pelicans and will play along side former Kentucky star Anthony Davis. Noel is a heck of a re bounder and also a ferocious shot blocker. Two dominant big men on that squad will make things very interesting for the Pelicans. Question them, do they keep Noel or is it trade bait? Noel will have instant motivations after it was thought he would go as the top pick. Pelicans fans will have to wait until Christmas Day to see him hit the floor but it will be worth the wait indeed
