“That doesn’t mean he couldn’t still do that, but that was gun-jumping,” Self said. “It certainly upset him, because somebody that was a source obviously didn’t have good information.”
Self doesn’t expect Embiid to make his intentions known anytime soon.
“The decision he needs to make is what’s best for him,” Self said, “whether to stay another year or to go, and I could see him do either one of them. And I think you could make a case that either one would be a good decision. He’s not quite like Andrew who’s been playing the game his whole life. He’s only been playing three years. He’s still trying to figure it out.”
