A week after being selected third overall by the Sixers in the 2014 NBA Draft, Joel Embiid has settled on a uniform number.
In a conference call with media members earlier in the week Embiid said that he wanted to wear No. 55 with the Sixers, but since fellow new-acquisition Pierre Jackson wears the number in honor of his grandmother, he would select another number.
Embiid has apparently decided upon No. 11 with his new franchise, sending out his selection in a Tweet Thursday evening.
“I’m getting #11. EMB11D #Togetherwebuild,” he Tweeted.
