On the September 7 episode of “The Bill Simmons Podcast,” Simmons said Embiid is one of three studs that may go for the Knicks, guaranteeing that one will join the Sixers opponent.
They’ll get one of those three guys, I guarantee,” Simmons added.
A year from now, Giannis Antetokoumnpo, Embiid, or Donovan Mitchell will be on that team.”
Leon Rose, the Knicks president, represented Embiid as his agent.
The Knicks are always suggested as a destination for stars since New York is so alluring and they play for one of the league's most renowned organizations.
Embiid may be dealt soon, but it may not be headed to New York. If dealt to the Knicks, he may play with Antetokounmpo or Mitchell.
