The Dallas Mavericks have acquired Nerlens Noel from the Philadelphia 76ers for Andrew Bogut, Justin Anderson and a first round pick.

Noel will be a restricted free agent in the offseason. Dallas has long been interested in Noel and intend to re-sign him.

The pick from the Mavericks to Philadelphia will be protected 1-18 in June's draft. According to Zach Lowe, if the pick is not conveyed as a first rounder this year, it converts to a second rounder in 2017 and 2018.

The 76ers had been attempting to trade Jahlil Okafor as they balance out their roster.

Bogut is widely expected to be rerouted to another team via trade or to be bought out in time to sign with a playoff contender. Bogut is on an $11 million contract this season.
