Mavs’ Don’t Consider Nerlens Noel A Hard Worker

Published

It doesn’t seem that center Nerlens Noel is making a good impression on his current team, the Dallas Mavericks.

In his 2nd season with the team, Noel had an opportunity to land a major role with the team as they rebuilt for the future but a nagging thumb injury and apparently a lack of work ethic have contributed to his limited minutes on the floor.

The Mavericks reportedly view Noel as someone who is not a hard worker, according to Newy Scruggs for The Dallas Morning News.

My sources tell me that Nerlens Noel is not known as a hard worker.

I’m told he doesn’t have a sense of hard play and that’s not going to fly with a head coach like Rick Carlisle who had to cut his teeth as a NBA player.

Until Noel shows a better work ethic other players will get minutes.

Noel ended up signing a one-year, $4.1 million contract in late August with the Mavericks after testing the market as a restricted free agent looking for a lucrative deal.

Noel is only averaging a career-low 12.5 minutes in 18 games played this year.

Not only does Noel risk not stating in Dallas, he also risks hauling in a big contract in free agency should this trend continue.

Kristaps Porzingis

Dallas Mavericks’ big man Kristaps Porzingis is set to finally return to the court after nearly a two-year layoff due to injury, and he has some big goals in mind when he dons a Mavericks uniform for the very first time since his trade from the New York Knicks.

In a post on his Instagram account, Porzingis asked his followers to ask him anything, and responded to one fan in particular, who asked if he would rather be All-NBA Third Team or the All-Defensive team.

Porzingis simply stated: “All Defensive! DPOY is a goal of mine!!”

Porzingis tore his ACL during the 2017-2018 season, while he was still playing with the Knicks, so it will be interesting to see what kind form Porzingis takes the court.

Even though his playing career is officially over, there are still plans for Dirk Nowitzki to be a part of the Dallas Mavericks in a big way.

According to DallasBasketball’s Mike Fisher, the greatest Mav to ever take the court may be taking a part-owner role with the organization, if Mark Cuban has his way.

Per the report, Cuban would “absolutely” love to have Nowitzki on board as part-owner of the team.

“I’ll have the convo with Dirk in the future. There is a lot of things involved to make it all work. But it would be awesome,” Cuban said in an interview with Fisher.
