Brooklyn, NY (WKYT) - Former UK big man Nerlens Noel is selected 6th overall by the New Orleans Pelicans. Noel, projected by many, to be the top overall choice instead goes to the Pelicans. Noel was clearly disappointed as others grabbed the top five slots. The money allotted to the sixth pick gets $2,643,600. Had Noel been given the call at number one, he would have made $4.4 million. Noel joins the 2012 top pick, and former UK All-American, Anthony Davis as well as Darius Miller.
