76ers Pick up Contract Options on Nerlens Noel and 2 Others

USA Today Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers will pick up the contract options of big man Nerlens Noel, guard Nik Stauskas, and center Joel Embiid, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

From the Inquirer’s article:

This comes as no surprise.

The 76ers exercised team options on Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Nik Stauskas Friday morning. This confirms a report by The Inquirer that this action would happen. The move keeps the three players under contract through the 2016-17 season.

Picking up Noel’s contract option comes as no surprise, as the big man is showing real signs of growth, including his 14 point, 12 rebound, 2 block game on opening night versus the Boston Celtics. Picking up Stauskas’ option is no surprise either, the 76ers traded for the former Michigan star during the off-season.

Embiid’s option being picked up also really isn’t a big surprise, but the former number three overall pick back in 2014 has yet to play a game for the 76ers.
