Philadephia 76ers star Joel Embiid is reportedly working out with 19-year-old big man Mo Bamba, a top prospect in the upcoming draft.
Bamba played one season for the Texas Longhorns and is expected to be one of the top players on draft boards this offseason.
The 19-year-old could be available when the Sixers are on the clock, depending on what selection they could end up acquiring from the Los Angeles Lakers if it does not fall between the second and fifth pick. But Bamba would likely be better suited for a team that needs a starting center.
Embiid texted him advice back in February 2018 (via CBS Sports):
“[He] told me to demand the ball more. He said he knows how little space you have in college, catching the ball and having everyone sink onto you, so you have to make moves quicker.”
