Could Embiid Slide To Celtics?
Now what? If Joel Embiid from Kansas was going to be the NBA #1 pick next week, how will foot surgery for a stress fracture affect the draft? Will the Cleveland Cavs still make him their pick or will he slide down in the draft?
So many questions…so few answers right now.
The 7-foot native of Cameroon seemed like he was headed to Cleveland. He worked out for them last month. but his agent now says he suffered the injury a few days ago.
Embiid was supposed to work out for the Milwaukee Bucks this week. The Bucks hold the #2 pick.
And, if he were to continue to slide down in the draft, what about the Boston Celtics – they have the #6 pick. Do they take Embiid.
