Nerlens Noel signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks.
Dallas Mavericks center Nerlens Noel has signed a one-year, $4.1 million qualifying offer to remain with the Mavs, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
Despite earlier reports that Noel was looking for a max contract, that clearly didn't pan out.
Haynes reported that a $17 million offer, which had also been reported, was "non-existent in any form."
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowksi, however, claims that Noel was offered a big contract in July, but turned it down.
Noel, who averaged 8.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 22 games with the Mavericks last season, was one of the few high-profile free agents left on the market, but it appears no one was willing to take a gamble on the former No. 6 overall pick.
Noel is just 23 years old and in his fourth NBA season.
