WITH 3 DAYS until training camp begins, the 76ers have contractually locked up their two first-round draft picks. Per team policy, terms of the deals weren't released on the contracts of center Nerlens Noel and guard Michael Carter-Williams.
The team also signed rookie free agent Rodney Williams, a guard/forward out of Minnesota, to a contract, according to a source.
Noel, a Kentucky product who is rehabbing a torn ACL in his left knee, was acquired by the Sixers in a draft-night trade that sent All-Star guard Jrue Holiday to New Orleans. The Pelicans had selected Noel with the sixth pick. The Sixers then selected point guard Carter-Williams from Syracuse at No. 11.
