Nerlens Noel Player Profile

Evaluation: Noel is simply an amazing shot-blocker. You can use whatever adjective you want — phenomenal, astounding, breath-taking, ridiculous, remarkable — all of those words are accurate terms. His timing, ability to block shots with both hands equally, quickness off his feet and length all contribute to his shot-blocking skills. Noel is also a good rebounder who has good physical tools between his aforementioned length in addition to his quickness and athleticism. He is great running the floor in transition. He is a game-changer on the defensive end and has done a nice job developing his offensive game. He has shown the ability to consistently make a hook over both shoulders and he has even flashed a 15-foot jumper every now and then. Once he becomes a threat on offense he will be a scary player. Other than working on his offensive skills, Noel can improve his strength since he’s very skinny.
