Noel is mostly known for his work at the defensive end, collecting rebounds and altering or blocking shots. He swatted a career-high 2.2 shots a game in 2020-21. The No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, he has also spent time with the 76ers, Mavericks and Thunder.

He is expected to add veteran depth to the center position behind Domantas Sabonis and along with Alex Len in Sacramento.
