Joel Embiid College Career

  • Embiid made his decision to enter the 2014 NBA draft on April 9, 2014, which meant that he would forego his remaining three years of NCAA eligibility.
  • In order to repair a broken navicular bone in his right foot, he underwent surgery on June 20, 2014, and as a result, he was unable to participate in any activities for a period of four to six months. After waiting for six days, the Philadelphia 76ers made their selection with the third overall choice in the draft.
  • The Philadelphia 76ers were the team that Embiid signed his rookie scale deal with on August 26, 2014. Due to the broken navicular bone in his foot, it was eventually determined that it was highly improbable that he would play at all during the 2014–15 season.
