Sixers Buy Out Andres Nocioni’s Contract

Nocioni played just 4 minutes this month, and the arrival of Sam Young makes the buy-out no surprise. From CSNPhilly: “According to a source, the Sixers bought out the contract of Andres Nocioni Friday night. One day earlier, they had acquired 6-foot-6 wing player Sam Young in a trade with Memphis that virtually made Nocioni a spectator from here on out, which had been his role for most of this season leading up to buyout. The move gives Nocioni the freedom to pursue finding a team that might want him for the home stretch of this condensed season or allow him to return to his beloved home country of Argentina.”

    who else completely forgot about nocioni?

    Nocioni lost his athleticism when he played for the bulls. Sixers could’ve used THAT noce. Not the old one. Tsk. Hopefully Sam Young would be a great fit.

    @ spit hot fiyah, thats literally exactly what I came here to ask. Wow, I used to like his game too, and I completly forgot he existed. haha

    The SPURS could use him to sure up the bench. Watch out in the West for the SPURS.

    Strange evolution. He was a beast at Europe, he has passion and hunger. In the last years he was a shadow. Maybe Lakers will be a good fit. Better than Evans.

    What a life, getting paid millions, with all the freedom in the world. Should he go to sun soaked Spain for a little, join a title contender in the NBA, or go home to family in Argentina? Anyway, I wish him the best. I wish he could have gotten a chance in Philly but I’m glad they did this for him. Buena suerte!!

    What happened to you man? You used to be beautiful…


    @huami True. But I remember some Sixers game in his 1st season where he was still very dangerous at his position. Very offensive type of player that shoots and attack the rim.

    I didn’t forget about noc. I bet dude can still play. A conteder will pick him up for cheap

  • franko

    Nocioni is a beast! if nobody wants him in the NBA world just wait to olympics!

  • huami

    @DABIGFUNDAMENTAL yeah, noce was soo good back then. Too bad he didn’t have a chance with the sixers. He was always used out of his natural position.
