Report: Sixers Interested In Joel Embiid At #376ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Sunday, June 22nd, 2014
This report just screams “smokescreen” to me.
Maybe the Sixers are trying to help repair Embiid’s value, and help recreate a market for themselves with the third overall pick.
They may be trying to bait teams like the Lakers or Celtics that had been hoping to snatch Embiid later in the first round into trading up to grab him.
Taking Embiid just doesn’t make a lot of sense for the Sixers. Not when they’ve got Nerlens Noel on the roster, and not after Embiid has now dealt with two significant injuries in the last year. Injury-prone bigmen just don’t last very long. The organization already learned that the hard way with Andrew Bynum.
