Joel Embiid plays 1-on-1 with Sixers mascot

Former third-overall pick Joel Embiid was spotted playing a few casual games of one-on-one at the Sixers Beach Bash on Saturday.

The seven-footer took on a few comers, including Philadelphia 76ers mascot Franklin the Dog, as seen in the video.

While he says he feels 100% after injuries have gotten the best of him since being drafted in 2014, it’s yet to be seen how much he’ll be capable of doing on the court.

There’s talk that some restrictions will be placed on his participation in practices, so the Sixers will likely bring him along slowly to prevent further injury.

The frontcourt situation seems loaded in Philadelphia with three lottery picks (Embiid, Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor) potentially battling for minutes at the power forward and center positions.

It’s yet to be seen who ends out being the odd man out in that starting rotation.
