Embiid and JJ Redick spoke at the podium together afterward. Asked for their reactions to Simmons’ shot, Redick initially answered that he wasn’t shocked by it. “You sure?” asked a smirking Embiid. “I was getting ready to run the play and I just literally saw the ball go over (my head). And I was like, ‘Oh shit,’” Embiid later said. “He caught me off guard. And I’m in a position, like, ‘What just happened?’ But I thought it was in. It was in and out. I wish he would’ve made it but he’s been working on it. Every day we tell him, ‘Got to shoot it.’”

Storyline: Nikola Vucevic Free Agency
Vucevic, who became a first-time father in December, said he’ll take a wait-and-see approach. “Obviously I’ve had a great seven years here, but at the same time, we’ll see what happens,” Vucevic said. “It’s a mutual decision, and it’s not just me. They have to decide what they want to do. Based on that, we’ll go from there. I wish I knew what would happen. I wish I had a contract in hand. It would be all over right now.”
