Update: The pursuit appears to be over:


Philadelphia 76ers No. 3 overall pick Joel Embiid is already trying to be a team player. He's recruiting free agents. So basically, Embiid is a better teammate than Derrick Rose!

So who's he after?

Oh, you know. LeBron James.

So I kind of like Joel Embiid now. How long will LeBron duck this question? What's this supposed King afraid of? What is he scared he'll find behind the doors of the Kingdom of Sixer?

The good news is, LeBron James will likely play as many games for Philadelphia next season as Joel Embiid and Dario Saric.
