^FWIW on the weight thing. I think Noel is arguably the best ballhandling big in this draft easily with the exception of maybe Olynyk, he is very fluid. I definitely think he's as good an athlete as Thad and better than J. Green, easily.Jeff (Orlando)
Will Noel be able to put on enough muscle to be able to defend bigs in the post?

I think so. The more research I've done on this the more it seems that he was actually up to 228 before the injury. That during an ACL surgery and rehab, young adults typically lose 15 to 20 pounds. He should be able to gain all of that back. In fact, hearing he's already up to 215 from the 206 he was at in Chicago.
