When Brett Brown demanded a four-year contract to coach the Philadelphia 76ers, this was why.

The first-year coach told news reporters Monday he doubts No. 6 overall draft pick Nerlens Noel will play this season. Noel, whom the 76ers traded All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday for (along with a 2014 first-round pick) on draft night in June, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in February while playing for Kentucky and had surgery in March.

"I doubt, everybody doubts that he's going to play this year," Brown said before a preseason game at the Cleveland Cavaliers. "We don't want to waste this year. I think from a skill perspective, it's an opportunity for us to break down his shot, really work on his free throws and start a little bit from ground zero."

They have nothing to gain from playing him, they're in full tank mode for good reason. He could easily play but the only thing that's going to benefit the team is losing as much as possible.

Very smart move.

Traded away their allstar, got a high draft pick- picked someone who can't contribute to the team. All before the most stacked draft in a decade. This is how you do it. At best they would have been a 6 seed and gone nowhere for the forseeable future if they weren't tanking and holding a firesale.

Now look at Charlotte. brb worst team in the league. brb never getting #1 pick brb biggest draft in 10 years coming up.....better pick up Al Jefferson and win enough games to take us out of the Wiggins/ Parker/ Randle sweepstakes
