Many felt the GM Sam Hinkie was wrongfully let go by the Sixers six years ago.
And Sixers star Joel Embiid is among them.
He made an appearance on the Draymond Green show, where he opened up:
“There was a couple of things. First thing was, I got drafted by Sam Hinkie. And you know, he’s the reason why we were able to draft me and have these many picks and all that stuff.
“I got to the league and my second year, (Hinkie) was basically forced out, I don’t wanna say names but you know I’m outspoken so I’ll say it: the NBA.
“I don’t know who, but I think that’s what it was. They basically forced him out and I didn’t like it.”
