Former University of Utah National Player of the Year award winner Andrew Bogut was held out of Dallas Mavericks practice on Wednesday, a signal that he'd likely be dealt before Thursday's NBA trade deadline.

According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, Bogut will be moved to the Philadelphia 76ers in a deal headlined by big man Nerlens Noel going to the Lone Star State.

Multiple outlets reported that Bogut, wing Justin Anderson and a conditional first-round pick will also be sent by the Mavericks in exchange for Noel.

Bogut is in the final year of a contract that will pay him just over $11 million this season. Multiple reports indicated Bogut could be bought out by the 76ers. Such a transaction needs to take place by March 1 in order for him to join another team for the playoffs.

The first overall pick of the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2005 NBA draft after winning the Wooden Award with the Utes, Bogut has been hampered by injuries this season and has appeared in just 11 games since Dec. 1.
