Sports WebXtra: Mavericks land Nerlens Noel

DALLAS, TX (KLTV) - Before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday afternoon, the Mavericks and owner Mark Cuban pulled off a deal with Philadelphia. Dallas is sending center Andrew Bogut, guard Justin Anderson, and a conditional first round pick to the 76ers in exchange for forward/center Nerlens Noel.

In his third season, Noel is averaging just under nine points and right at five rebounds per game. The 22 year-old gives Dallas a younger body down low and someone that can protect the rim.
