The Philadelphia 76ers finally introduced their big prize of the Jrue Holiday trade this afternoon at PCOM as No. 6 overall draft pick Nerlens Noel met with the local media for the first time.
One of the topics Noel touched on was his new GM, Sam Hinkie, and how he managed to pull off such a smooth move in reuniting him with his former AAU teammate and “best friend” Michael Carter-Williams.
Nerlens was obviously a big fan of the move and called the guy who signs his paychecks a “genius” for pairing the duo together again.
And if you ever wondered how a regular-sized person interviews a giant NBA player, here’s a little inside baseball:
