Nerlens Noel Will Wear No. 5 In Honor Of Teams That Passed On Him In Draft

Philadelphia 76ers Nerlens Noel plans to wear No.5 in honor of the number of teams that passed on him in the NBA draft, according to an ESPN report.

Noel, who is recovering from ACL surgery, was widely projected to go No.1 but dropped to the No.6 pick. The New Orleans Pelicans selected Noel sixth and then traded him to the 76ers, along with a first-round 2014 pick, for Jrue Holiday and the 42nd pick.
