The Philadelphia 76ers currently have Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, Dario Saric and Ben Simmons at forward. Looks like this is the season the Sixers could go out and draft a guard. ESPN’s Chad Ford has the Sixers selecting a point guard in his first 2017 mock draft.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed on Wednesday that wide receiver Jordan Matthews won’t play Saturday against Indianapolis, though Matthews assured reporters Saturday that he will "for sure" be ready for Week 1.
Brown was asked point-blank by Lowe if Embiid would play in the preseason - “Yes he is,” Brown answered immediately.
Multiple videos of Embiid working out have surfaced this summer and the vibes have been positive, but this is maybe the biggest endorsement that he will in fact step on a NBA floor this season.
"I just left my third consecutive day working out with Joel 45 minutes ago," Brown said. "Physically, mentally, recent medical scans, everything is pointing in the right direction. We’re just very excited."
The Sixers open the preseason on Oct. 4 against the Boston Celtics.
