Joel Embiid Tweets He Hasn't Made an NBA Draft Decision Yet [Update: Embiid Declared]

Joel Embiid decided to declare for the NBA Draft according to Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski. (As linked in today’s Roundup.) Woj cites “sources” and says that the official announcement will be made later this week. Meanwhile, Joel Embiid took to twitter to deny that he was leaving Kansas.

Obviously this doesn’t mean that Embiid is definitely staying at Kansas for a sophomore season, but you never know. There is also the possibility that Embiid has decided to go to the NBA, but he just wants to be the one to break the biggest news of his entire life to the world.

If Embiid actually told someone, ‘I think I want to stay,’ they’d immediately bring up two things that might change his mind: 1) Marcus Smart, 2) Your back.

UPDATED: It took a couple weeks, but Embiid has declared.
