Its been reported that it’s highly unlikely the Celtics would let Embiid slip by them at No. 6. Embiid was projected to be a top-three NBA draft pick, if not first overall to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The freshman 7-foot center also sat out the NCAA tournament because of a stress fracture in his back.
