These 6 African Players Were Drafted Into the NBA Last Night

Embiid’s personality made a great impression on Fultz, but not just because of how amusing he can be.But after I spent most of Thursday evening watching NBA draft coverage on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia rather than ESPN or the NBA Network, I changed my mind. He says Joel Embiid has texted him 75 times since he visited Philly. Fultz led the Pac-12 in scoring, finished No. 6 among all Division I players, and was the top freshman scorer in the country. “@Tissot.us is helping me get started with my Sixers watch #ThisIsMyTime #NBADraft”, his new and improved Instagram caption reads.This is hilarious and just another reminder that we are talking about kids, here. “He just said guys that are my size and are versatile offensively and defensively, it’s hard not to play those guys”.We can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the Sixers, but slow your roll with all the playoff talk.”Pay attention to my footwear”, the Washington guard said. The answer? “I’ve been going to Larry’s”, he said.LOVING LONZO — AND LAVAR: Ball acknowledged that there might be a “target” on him entering the draft because of all his father’s comments. Eat them while you can, Markelle!With the seventh pick the Minnesota Timberwolves claimed Lauri Markkanen of Finland, who played college ball at Arizona, but the Finn will be headed to Chicago as part of a big trade for All-Star guard Jimmy Butler.”Everything we are doing with this roster is designed with a championship in mind”, said team president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo. There is going to be a level of patience from the coaching staff, from the city, from teammates that clearly we’re all going to have to go through. The 6-foot-4 guard out of Washington has gone on late-night TV and boasted of his love of Philly cheesesteaks, made a social media connection with franchise player Joel Embiid and dazzled on draft night with a pair of orange sneakers made of the same leather used to make National Basketball Association game balls.Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers are particularly excited as their teams have the top two picks in the draft, which is being held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Scouts also rave Ojeleye as a great defender and was a projected first round pick before sliding. “And those teams who didn’t draft me, one day they will be sorry”.The trade is very important for the Lakers in order to dispose long-term salaries off its shoulder and also to be able to finally get an additional first round pick.Markkanen was asked about potentially playing with or replacing Porzingis, who team president Phil Jackson told MSG Network on Wednesday the Knicks are taking calls about after he left NY without attending his exit interview.
