Nerlens Noel Inks $4.1 Million Qualifying Offer With Dallas

Nerlens Noel is headed back to Dallas, having reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4.1 million qualifying offer from the Mavs.

Noel, 23, had reportedly turned down a four-year, $70 million offer earlier this summer.

The big fella is betting on himself, and clearly believes he can get a max deal on the open market next year.


The offer was signed in Los Angeles this week, according to sources.


Noel, 23, recently switched agents, hiring LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group after a summer in which he was unable to fashion an acceptable multiyear deal from the Mavericks or garnish an offer sheet elsewhere.


A reported $17 million offer from Dallas was nonexistent in any form, according to sources close to Noel, though league sources say a four-year, $70 million contract was offered to Noel on July 1.


Sources said that the four-year offer was pulled when Noel asked for a max deal.
