The internet is now hinting for a possible trade to happen any time soon. Noel have also been on the same situation this offseason.
The 22 year old big man, together with his teammate Jahlil Okafor, had been engaged to several trade rumors since the organization drafted Ben Simmons at number 1 last June.

The rumors got even louder as the team has announced that the 2014 3rd overall pick, Joel Embiid, and European sensation, Dario Saric, will be coming to the team this season.

Meanwhile, the not-so-old trade rumors between the Celtics and Sixers around Noel could still happen. The Celtics reportedly still have a 'high level of interest' for Noel. With the team drafted Jaylen Brown on draft night, they could use another rim protector to assist Al Horford in the paint.
