SIXERS’ JOJO EMBIID: ‘HINKIE LOST HIS JOB BECAUSE OF ME!’

By Mary Cunningham

Sixers star Joel Embiid has often said that former GM Sam Hinkie “died for our sins” in reference to Hinkie leaving the team before his plan was realized.

Now he seems to be taking responsibility for the death.

From an interview with David Aldridge on NBA.com:

Aldridge: Sam Hinkie drafted you. Do you keep in touch with him, call, text?

Embiid: Yeah, we text sometimes. We talk to each other sometimes. I mean, that’s the guy that drafted me, and he made sure he put everything in place so I could get healthy. And I got healthy and I got back on the court. And I feel like he basically kind of lost his job because of me, because I missed two years. So I feel like I owe him a lot. Yeah, we talk. We talk sometimes.
