Nerlens Noel is a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, but it didn’t happen the way he expected it to.

Noel was generally considered the consensus #1 player on the board for many weeks, but when draft night came, Noel waited until the 6th pick to be drafted by the Pelicans.

New Orleans quickly shipped Noel and Picks to Philadelphia for point guard Jrue Holiday.  Noel took offense to sliding down so far, and according to USA Today, will wear the No. 5, as a reminder of how many teams passed on him.
