The Philadelphia 76ers could be bringing back former first round draft pick Nerlens Noel as free agency is set to officially open, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey.

Noel, 25, played his first two seasons in the NBA with the Sixers, and is coming off a rather solid campaign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are currently undergoing a massive rebuild and roster purge.

Noel averaged 7.4 points, 4.9 boards and 1.5 blocks per game for the Thunder last season, and can officially sign a free agent deal once free agency officially opens on Monday.

The report also indicated that new Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey has been a fan of Noel for quite some time.
