Nerlens Noel, drafted No. 6 by the Philadelphia 76ers as part of their vaunted "Process" in 2013, has been traded twice since. But he settled into a bench role with the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, playing a career-high 77 games while averaging 4.9 points and 1.2 blocks in 13.5 minutes.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Noel has agreed to return and help the Thunder attempt to advance beyond the first round in a wide-open Western Conference.
