Nerlens Noel Unlikely To Play In Summer League

Apr 9, 2015 1:06 PM

Nerlens Noel is unlikely to play in the Summer League this offseason, which means he won't have an opportunity to play with Joel Embiid until the preseason.

"I don't think I want to play him in the summer league," Brett Brown said of Noel. "I don't feel like the need to do that. I think that he'll come and practice with the team. I think there's a lot of logic that you could spin it and say, 'Well, shoot, you're missing opportunities for [Embiid] and Nerlens to play together.' I think it sounds more glamorous than it would need to be. I don't believe that's a must. I see Nerlens coming in and practicing with that team and investing a hell of a lot of time this summer with Joel, but perhaps not in that environment."

Noel has remained remarkably healthy and productive in his delayed rookie season.
