National Basketball Association trade deadline: Latest rumors, reported trades

A high-energy player who makes his impact on the defensive end, Noel ends his Sixers career with averages of 10.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.6 blocks in 171 games.

Finally, it looks as if the Sixers will not be keeping Bogut according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

Bogut is averaging 3.0 points and 8.3 rebounds in 26 games.

"In Justin Anderson, Philadelphia has acquired a high class person and multiple position player who has made great strides over his first two years", Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. While both squads could use a serious winning streak right about now, it wouldn't be a surprise to see either team making a run at a playoff spot. He is also set to be a restricted free agent this offseason, and Dallas is expected to immediately work on an extension with him. Anderson averaged just 11.8 minutes last season for the Mavericks, and played only slight more this season, averaging 13.9 minutes.

The 22-year-old Noel played 171 games over a three-year span with the 76ers after being traded to the team from New Orleans in July 2013. But now the center spot will be handled by Noel, while Nowitzki can return to the position that helped him become one of the greatest players in National Basketball Association history.

Embiid, who suffered a bone bruise and small meniscus tear in the knee when he landed awkwardly after dunking against the Portland Trail Blazers on January 20, sat out the last 11 games before the break, and 14 of 15.

Noel has been the subject of trade rumors all season, as the 76ers already have Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid occupying time in the post.

It's been a long time coming. He turns 23 in March.

Bogut, 32, has only played in four games since January 9.
