As speculation about Joel Embiid’s satisfaction level with the Philadelphia 76ers mounts, ESPN NBA analyst and former NBA player Richard Jefferson recently shared his bold prediction. Speaking on the Road Trippin’ Show, Jefferson discussed the possibility of the reigning MVP moving to the New York Knicks.
“I think Joel Embiid and another superstar are going to end up in New York,” Jefferson said. “Nobody wanted to be the savior of the New York Knicks. So now that they’ve got talent, they’ve built in, they’ve got foundational pieces, they’ve got an All-Star point guard in Brunson, now the kids are going to want to play there.”
