NBA Draft 2013: Sixers Send Jrue Holiday to Pelicans for Nerlens Noel, 2014 First-Round Pick


In a shocking turn of events, the 76ers sent All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans for Nerlens Noel and their 2014 first-round pick.

Noel is coming off a freshman season in which he tore his ACL in a game against Miami. He averaged 10.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 4.4 rebounds per game for Kentucky.

Next year’s draft is much deeper than 2013.

Philadelphia will miss you, Jrue.
