Report: 76ers’ Joel Embiid has actually grown 2 inches since getting drafted
According to Philadelphia Inquirer beat writer Keith Pompey, the team recently measured the 21-year-old center who continues to recover from a broken bone in his foot:
The 250-pound Embiid — the off-and-on social media boyfriend of Rihanna — is listed at an even 7 feet on the Sixers roster.
The 1-19 Sixers could certainly use all 7 feet and 2 inches of Embiid next season.
