Nerlens Noel is determined to become a contributor on the offensive end of the floor after coming into the NBA known primarily as a defensive specialist.

"I never wanted to hurt my team," said Noel of missing shots. "Now, I'm definitely being able to go in the gym and work on my game and do a lot of repetition.

"I'm definitely going to have a strong offensive game."

Noel is rehabbing hard from a torn ACL and wants to win over fans of the Philadelphia 76ers with a blue collar approach.

"I mean, whatever I have to do to win over the city of Philadelphia, I will do," said Noel.
