Former Kentucky Wildcat Nerlens Noel was projected by many NBA draft experts to be the overall No. 1 pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft.

Instead, the 6-foot-10 Noel was taken 6th overall by the New Orleans Pelicans and then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Noel averaged 10.5 points and 9.5 rebounds and blocked 106 shots as a freshman at UK.

He continues to rehabilitate his surgically repaired knee.  He tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a game at Florida and missed the remainder of the season.  He had surgery March 12th.

The 76ers still have not hired a new head coach two months after Doug Collins resigned.
