Noel joined the University of Kentucky where he participated in several national-level tournaments. His early performances were very impressive as he even managed a single-game record for the university with 12 blocks. However, Noel would suffer a horrible ACL injury on his left knee which forced him to sit out and recover for the rest of the season. Yet, regardless of this setback, he was able to win several accolades including during that first season with the University of Kentucky.

Noel then entered the NBA draft after just one season at university and would be picked as the sixth overall by the New Orleans Pelicans. However, he would later be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers. Though he wanted to contribute on his debut season, his injury was holding him off. However, he finally made his debut in 2014 against the Indiana Pacers. He extended his rookie contract with the 76ers and performed in the next years as well.

During this time, he did face some injury setbacks too with his left knee still being problematic from time to time. He also publicly expressed his dissatisfaction of being played only eight minutes in a game mentioning how he is a much better player than what has been perceived of him by the coaches.

Noel then made a move to the Dallas Mavericks and later re-signed for a one-year deal with them. Later on, he played for the Oklahoma City Thunder for two years after which he has been a part of the New York Knicks.

Personal Life

Nerlens Noel is currently single. He has a total of three siblings with two of them being brothers while he also has a younger sister. Similar to Noel, both of his brothers are very athletic and involved in sports too.

As of 2022, Nerlens Noel has an estimated net worth of $13 million. Noel has extended his contract with the New York Knicks which will see him earn $32 million in the coming three years. However, apparently according to Noel, he should have been able to get a contract worth a lot more money if it were not for his agent Rich Paul.

What happened is that his agent convinced him that he should not sign for the Mavericks even though they were offering him $70 million. Paul rather gave him the idea to take a one-year deal for way less money but that he would get a $100 million offer. However, the plan didn’t work out as Noel got injured badly. Because of this, Noel is filing a lawsuit against his agent claiming $58 million in lost wages.
