Noel is also an April 1994 B-Day. He'll be a 19 year old all next season like Beal is this year. He's a true big man. You're talking about a player who is probably six years away from being fully developed. But with that kind of IQ paired with that body and athletic talent, he's got All Star true big upside. That's top three value.
If you're pressing the reset button on this rebuild, you could do it around Beal and Noel as the long term pieces, as young as they are.

Plus I'd hope we could draft Gobert and stash him in Europe to let superior coaches in France develop him in the mean time.
Right now I'm waffling between Zeller and Gobert at 4 and 5. I was hoping Poythress would step up and really claim a spot in the top four or five, but doesn't seem like that's going to happen.

Noah is pretty damn good. 5 points, 6 boards, 3 assists in the first half. I can see Nerlens being a quicker Noah with better hops once he matures.

Okafor has been on fire the past two games.
