Noel and a top 5 protected first in what is likely one of the best drafts ever for Holiday. Seems like a no brainer to me. I know Holiday is a rising star, but that team wasn't going anywhere anyway so it makes a lot of sense to me.
Not a Sixers' fan but live near Philly, and I have to agree with dh on this one. People forget how young Holiday is, and he's already a proven All-Star. He was far and away the best player on that Sixers' team. I'm not the only one who has visions of Noel being another Bradley or Bol for Philly, and who knows what next year's pick will be. Only time will tell, but trading a young All-Star for 2 "maybes" doesn't excite me.
