Nerlens Noel continues to search for a contract as a restricted free agent, but the Dallas Mavericks reportedly made a lucrative offer to the 23-year-old that he turned down.
Per Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, Noel rejected a Mavericks contract offer in the range of $17.5 million per year at some point this offseason.
The Philadelphia 76ers traded the former first-round pick to the Mavericks on Feb. 23.
Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reported Monday that Noel changed representatives by hiring Rich Paul of Klutch Sports.
Chris Barnewall of CBS Sports said Noel's decision to switch agents in the middle of free agency, especially at this late date, is "unprecedented." Barnewall added that Paul represents stars like LeBron James and Eric Bledsoe but is "also known for very long holdouts."
