What they're saying: Colangelo, Sixers mostly panned for Noel trade

NBA rule prevents Warriors from re-signing Andrew Bogut

Sticking with that notion, the Philadelphia 76ers, which are 21-35 in the Eastern Conference heading into Thursday night, have chose to part ways with their second big man in a span of two days.

The NBA Trade deadline just showed another weird transaction with the Philadelphia 76ser just ruining the "Process" that they were doing, trading Nerlens Noel instead of Jahlil Okafor to the Dallas Mavericks.

Surely that rate isn't bringing home any championships, but it does illustrate the major problem the Sixers have, and the biggest flaw in The Process: The team is almost twice as good when Okafor doesn't play.

Taking on another player with sound physical tools and a busted jumper is not, by any means, the ideal return for Noel. This season, Noel is averaging 8.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 19.4 minutes a game.

When Noel returned, Brown stayed loyal to Okafor, benching the most defensive-minded of his three centers in lieu of the second-year player with a solid offensive game, but little ability to defend and, seemingly, even less desire. We won't be able to see what that money gets them until years down the road, so the initial value of Noel seems bad, but it could end up being very beneficial.

At the time of writing, Philadelphia holds a 21-35 record while Dallas stands at 22-34. Since then, Dallas has had a revolving door of centers that have all been subpar at best.

Jay Z: From Marcy to VC
His slow crawl into the VC world can be traced back in 2011, when Roc Nation invested in Stance , a "premium sock company". He's also invested in JetSmarter and Uber, according to Crunchbase , which collects VC investment data.

Ferrell gives the Mavs their best defensive presence at point guard in the starting lineup in years, and Noel is already one of the best defensive centers in the National Basketball Association. That was an easier task when the team had a younger Nowitzki, who would make anyone the team signed better and smooth over a roster's flaws, but the climb back is doable. But he's not so good you trade Nerlens Noel for two seconds! He will be a restricted free agent this summer.

But while the Mavs likely would've won this trade simply by acquiring Noel, the relative low assets they gave up to get him, truly make them the clear victor.

They were not getting a top-five pick for Noel. Will Noel sign a max contract with Dallas only to have his injury history haunt him and his athletic game moving forward? In that case, the pick conveys to second-round picks in 2017 and 2018, giving the Sixers about a million of them accrued over the next several years. Dallas has always been intrigued with the 22-year-old forward-center out of Kentucky. He was mostly unavailable at the most important times during his Warriors tenure.

ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the first round pick heading to Philadelphia is a conditional first-round pick, as it is protected from picks 1-18.

After all of that, Philly got a few second round picks and the Mavericks got the big men of the future. Joel Embiid had yet to play.

If it is any consolation, Anderson has potential. Effective field goal percentage is -.049. In all, seven deals were completed prior to the deadline, with some teams really helping their chances this season.
