LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Nerlens Noel confirmed to ESPN on Thursday that he will play in the Orlando Summer League.
Earlier Thursday, Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie told radio station WIP that he expects Noel to make his NBA debut there.
Noel missed the entire 2013-14 season after suffering a torn ACL in February in a game at Florida.
He was the sixth overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA draft, then traded to the 76ers in exchange for All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday.
Noel was cleared for "limited on-court work" in January but has yet to play an NBA game.
