Provided the deal terms don't change, Dallas will create two trade exceptions in this Nerlens Noel deal, worth $6.6 million and 1.5 million

The addition of Nerlens Noel fits Dallas' dual goals of fighting for a playoff spot and preparing for a post-Dirk future. Noel, 22, has upside to be a Tyson Chandler type of rim protector, rebounder and finisher.

Mavericks deal Bogut to 76ers for Noel

The Dallas Mavericks have traded center Andrew Bogut to the Philadelphia 76ers for forward Nerlens Noel, according to ESPN's Marc Stein and multiple reports.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Dealing Andrew Bogut and/or Deron Williams wouldn't pull the plug on the Mavs fighting for the West's final playoff berth. Dallas recently proved it could win without the two veterans. Williams missed all of the Mavs' 5-2 stretch that included wins over the Spurs, Cavaliers and Jazz. Yogi Ferrell averaged 15.3 points, 4.6 assists and 2.0 steals as the starting point guard during that span, which started after the rookie joined the Mavs on a 10-day deal. Bogut played only eight minutes during that stretch before a hamstring strain sidelined him for eight straight games. Salah Mejri took advantage of the increased playing time during Bogut's absence. Mejri has averaged 5.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 14.1 minutes in February, when he has a net rating of plus-13.3. "We were able to win some games without those guys, as you said," coach Rick Carlisle said. "If it turns out they're not here, they're not here and this is what we've got. If there are trades, there's a chance there's going to be some players coming back that can help us. Look, we'll see. We'll know by 2 o'clock (CT) tomorrow and we'll go from there."

Mavs PG J.J. Barea (calf) practiced but will miss at least next 3 games. "There's a possibility we'll only have 12 players," Rick Carlisle said, pending possible trades of Andrew Bogut and Deron Williams.

Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut were held out of Mavs practice. "With the trade deadline tomorrow, you can read a lot into that," coach Rick Carlisle said. "That's about all I'm going to say about that."

Sources say Mavs' approach to deadline isn't impacted by DeMarcus Cousins deal. The Mavs won't pull the plug on fighting for West's final playoff spot. That doesn't necessarily mean the Mavs won't make a trade, but there will not be a fire sale with Dallas veterans.

He is "disheartened" to see that Oakley and Dolan have still not made up but he remains "hopeful" Oakley will return to the Garden.
