10:44 PM ET 06.28 | As all the drama unfolded on draft night, two long-time friends were re-united. After the Sixers officially acquired Nerlens Noel from the New Orleans Pelicans, they drafted Syracuse's Michael Carter Williams to re-unite two former AAU teammates. 6 ABC's Jeff Skversky caught up with Michael Carter-Williams, who couldn't have been happier to be drafted by the Sixers and be teammates with Noel. Via Jeff Skversky, "Michael Carter Williams tells 6 ABC he's always dreamed of playing on the same team as Nerlens Noel". As Sixers fans try to soak in what was a crazy first-round of the NBA draft, Carter-Williams and Noel get to soak in their crazy basketball journey, which has taken them from AAU teammates all the way to NBA teammates.
