Scouting
  • There were injury concerns about his back already, now his foot injury could drop him. Despite only playing the game for three years, Embiid has phenomenal feel and offensive skills. Ceiling is extremely high. - Jeff Borzello
  • Ability to score with either hand around the basket, excellent feel, decent touch, moves well without ball.
  • Injury concerns, strength defensively, staying out of foul trouble, decision-making once he gets the ball down low.
 
Mock Draft
  • Round: 1    Pick: 3

    Matt Moore's Analysis:

    Best Player Available pick. I hate having Orlando take Embiid with Nikola Vucevic on roster, but there's no getting past it. Vucevic turns into a huge trade chip.

  • Round: 1    Pick: 2

    Gary Parrish's Analysis:

    Embiid's upside is obvious and well-documented. But does that bad back worry anybody else? I mean, I love him. But it's kinda scary taking a 19-year-old with back issues, isn't it? (Previous: 3)

  • Round: 1    Pick: 2

    Zach Harper's Analysis:

    The presence of Nerlens Noel and the concerns about Joel Embiid's back injury wouldn't be enough to scare Sam Hinkie away from the most intriguing prospect in the draft. He can always move Noel or utilize them as a twin towers approach. (Previous: 2)
