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.

And given the Sixers roster, these two could be their top 2 players when season starts :-)
