LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Former Kentucky center Nerlens Noel's injured knee is progressing well and he expects to make his NBA debut in December.
The 6-foot-10 former Noel is recovering from a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, though that didn't prevent the Philadelphia 76ers from acquiring the sixth overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in last month's NBA draft.
Another former Wildcat, Archie Goodwin, is looking to make a more immediate impact in the NBA. He had an impressive performance in his first action, helping the Phoenix Suns win the NBA Summer League title after the 29th overall selection's pro potential was questioned before the draft.
Noel, Goodwin and fellow former Wildcats Julius Mays and Twany Beckham were back on campus Monday assisting Kentucky coach John Calipari's pro camp for youth players.
