Center Joel Embiid, the third pick in the 2014 draft out of Kansas, is one of those unseen players who would figure to improve the Sixers.
Hinkie drafted him shortly after he received surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot, an injury that looked set to sideline the prospective top-pick for four to six months.
While Embiid isn’t playing in real games, he has been participating in Philly’s practices. When he has, he’s been pretty impressive. Enough so, in fact, that the Sixers tweeted out this video of Embiid going through his legs for a dunk in Friday’s warmups.
