Embiid and the architect of “The Process” in Philly continue to stay in touch.
The 23-year-old feels indebted to Hinkie, who resigned last year.
Sam Hinkie drafted you. Do you keep in touch with him, call, text?
Embiid: “Yeah, we text sometimes. We talk to each other sometimes. I mean, that’s the guy that drafted me, and he made sure he put everything in place so I could get healthy. And I got healthy and I got back on the court. And I feel like he basically kind of lost his job because of me, because I missed two years. So I feel like I owe him a lot. Yeah, we talk. We talk sometimes.”
