Mavs president Donnie Nelson on perceived lack of value for 76ers in Nerlens Noel deal: "Look, they had an extremely difficult situation. They were overstocked at the center position. You're looking at basically the possibility of a couple-month rental, and so I think they did the best that they could with the situation they had. It was really a need position for us, and it was taking the best possible deal they could get. They like Justin Anderson a lot. He is the critical piece, and it was hard for us to give them that piece."
