It's as if the Philadelphia 76ers have yet to learn their lesson about trading for 7-fotters with knee issues. 

A year removed from trading for Andrew Bynum, who never donned a Sixers jersey on the court, Philly pulled the Blog Photo - Proposed Draft Day Trade: Nerlens Noel to Philly trigger on a draft day trade, sending their former first round pick Jrue Holiday along with their second round pick to New Orleans for Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first round pick.

This works out very well for new Orleans - grabbing an established talent that still has plenty of room to grow under Pelicans coach Monty Williams.

Noel will be able to grow in the city of brotherly love alongside Evan Turner and this budding duo could make some noise, but this is still a true rebuilding process. 

New Orleans, however, is on the rise. Good luck to Jrue and Nerlens in their respective cities.
