HATFIELD, Pa. (WPVI) -- As the Philadelphia 76ers are getting ready for the draft Thursday, one of their biggest stars is helping kids become future stars.
Nerlens Noel is hosting a weeklong basketball camp in Hatfield with special guests like Sixers coach Brett Brown.
Not only do the campers want to learn the game, they also want to know what the Sixers will do with the third overall pick in the draft.
Whether they take Ohio State guard D'Angelo Russell or even a big guy, Noel believes they will be a better team come Thursday night.
"The whole city of Philly is ecstatic. I think a lot is coming our way. I think we can add many pieces," Noel said.
Noel's name has come up in trade rumors, but not only does he expect to be at Sixers camp in the fall and continue to play for this team, he also expects to play with last year's third overall pick Joel Embiid, even though his right foot is not heeling as quickly as anticipated.
"I have no doubt that Joel is going to play basketball soon. Playing against him this summer a couple times, he looked great, he looked very healthy," Noel said.
Noel believes between Embiid and their handful of second round picks, the Sixers are headed in the right direction.
