Pelicans Trade Nerlens Noel, 2014 First Rounder for Jrue Holiday

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

After taking Nerlens Noel with the 6th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the New Orleans Pelicans have traded Noel to the Philadelphia 76ers along with a 2014 1st round pick for point guard Jrue Holiday.

It's currently unclear exactly what the protections on that pick will be; 2014 is expected to be one of the strongest in recent memory. Chris Broussard reports that the pick has protection only from spots 1 to 3. Marc Stein reports that it's protected from 1 to 5.

More as it develops.
