Nerlens Noel To Visit Orlando Magic
Nerlens Noel, absent another prospect stepping up to usurp his place, has been widely considered the likely No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. Otto Porter (positional fit), Ben McLemore (traditional skillset for his position) and Victor Oladipo (personality) have each garnered support in some corners to be selected by the Cavaliers, but its still Noel and then everyone else.
But Noel isnt certain hell go No. 1, and heres the proof. Andy Katz of ESPN:
UKs Nerlens Noel will make his first visit to a team Sunday when hes in Orlando (No. 2) pick. Cleveland (No. 1) not scheduled yet.
Agents typically limit their clients visits in an attempt to preserve a perception that the player belongs in a certain range, and Noels perceived range is No. 1 through No. 1 right now. Another concern is the risk of injury or fatigue from workouts, though that wont apply to Noel, whos still out with his ACL tear and wont work out for teams. That makes visiting the Magic a pretty safe move.
