I think you want to keep Noel.

With Simmons, Embiid and Saric - you don't need scorers. You need a guy who can play defense rebound and do the dirty work without asking for 15 shots.
Very excited for this season, I like this years Rockets team, glad Dwight is gone, I love Clint Capela, and love the addition of Nene' to the squad. Not saying championship, but they should be fun to watch as long as Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon stay healthy.

yup. Embiid / Noel would be great on defense at least.

well I know Harden is happy since he won't have to play any defense at all now with Mike D running that show.

...and Embiid is special offensively too. He had plenty of post moves in college and I've heard he has worked a lot on his 3pt shooting.

So, if he's healthy (big if) - I think he's gonna be a really good 2 way player and that's more of a reason to trade Okafor - so he's not taking shots away from Embiid.

Ya he can hit those 3s. He's an all-around player. Just needs to stay healthy, and then also produce at a high level.

Noel is replaceable in my eyes. Very one dimensional. We have a player in Rashaun Holmes that can step right in and sort of do what Noel does. If Embiid goes down at least we still have some offensive game down low with Okafor

Fools so overrated.

Embiid may be one of the most intriguing players this year. Kid has special talent.
