Media asking about Jah's weaknesses being a concern. Says every player has flaws and coaches come up with improvement plans when they first meet with them. Says FT shooting can improve. Also says players can improve just from becoming pros, when they don't have to worry about school anymore

So basically your replace Embiid with Okafor, tank one more year, then load up next year. The kick the can crowd is going to love that.

Says in the same situation 1-2, if Embiid was healthy, "I think we would've had the courage to take [Okafor] anyway"

Basically just said Okafor pick was partially insurance for Embiid. Wasn't expecting that honesty

The fact that Embiid has no soreness seems like good news, right?

I took at as they are just being super cautious. Who knows though.

Says Embiid has skills on the perimeter that are amazing and Noel was great with the roaming defense and all 3 of these guys can play together

He had no soreness last year when they identified the problem.

Eskin brings up that they're doing more stashes...."When is the plane gonna land?" When are we gonna see players playing here? Hink says 6 picks in one draft is highly unusual. 3 making the team, maybe 4 is doable, but expecting all 5 or 6 is ridiculous. Eskin: "So why do you keep collecting them?" Says three of them will be here tomorrow, says Tokoto was considered with the #47 pick

No details on the CBA violations. Still looking into it. Doesn't feel like there's anything there

Asked about all the reports that players don't wanna be here. Brings up the heritage of the franchise, playing in a big city, likes to show these kids how awesome the city is

Eskin asking when we're finally gonna see some results. Hink says we're still getting there, brings up "generational talent" of Okafor. Eskin: "So you don't have an answer then..."

On free agency, has to be a fit, but it's up to the player deciding what market, what coach, what teammates they wanna play for
