Nerlens Noel turned down a four-year, $70 million offer from the Dallas Mavericks at the start of free agency.

Noel, who was a restricted free agent, asked the Mavericks for a max contract.

Noel signed for the qualifying offer of $4.1 million in late August to end his restricted free agency and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2018.

The Mavericks traded for Noel at the 2017 trade deadline.
