Joel Embiid has some company on the Philadelphia 76ers frontline. Nerlens Noel, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, threw down this dunk with his first touch of the ball in the NBA Summer League.
Noel, who claimed recently to have been at 100 percent "for months now," will try to make every summer league rep count as he enters his rookie season a year later than he would've liked to. Today's game was a nice start. In 26 minutes against the Orlando Magic, Noel put up 19 points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block. Watching him and Embiid patrol the paint for the 76ers next season could be fun.
