Joel Embiid has quickly established himself as one of the potential treasures in the 2014 NBA draft field. He's been on a tear as of late and even recently started generating No. 1 overall whispers.
His latest dominant performance came against Iowa State, where he opened eyes and turned heads with some standout play at both ends of the floor.
“I think Embiid is the best player in the country,” said Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg, per Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star. “Did you see him play tonight? He’s huge, great length, can shoot, has incredible footwork and has been playing the game for about two years.”
Only a few teams will be bad enough to be in play for Embiid at the top of the draft. These are those teams, specifically the ones that could really use the services he brings to the table long term.
