NBA Draft: The Latest Chatter


Rumors will be flying throughout the day so keep checking SCIC for the latest news.

Could Nerlens Noel Tumble?

Kentucky center Nerlens Noel, once the overwhelming favorite to be the top overall pick, could slide down the draft board tonight.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cleveland Cavaliers, who hold the top pick and “choosing between Nerlens Noel and Alex Len” and if they do indeed go with Len, “Noel could drop to Suns at No. 5.”

I’m not sure both Orlando and Charlotte could pass on Noel if he’s there.

Oladipo Locked In At 2?

The Orlando Magic are targeting players that fit a new culture they’re trying to build – one GM Rob Hennigan says it made up of hard work and a team-first attitude.

Perhaps no other player fits that mold better than Indiana wing Victor Oladipo.

The Magic have been connected to Oladipo throughout the process and according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, “Oladipo’s strong at No. 2 for Orlando.”

Wojnarowski also notes “momentum’s growing” for Oladipo’s Indiana teammate, Cody Zeller, at 4 to Charlotte.
