Why is Joel Embiid still on the NBA’s All-Rookie Team

Joel Embich is still on Team USA’s All Rookies, which is a bit of a surprise considering how many other guys have already been on the roster.

Embiidan, who was the MVP of the Rio Olympics, has been on every team that has had a shot at the Olympic title.

Embich, though, hasn’t been on Team America.

The former All-Star will be a member of Team Canada this year and he has also been named to Team USA for this summer’s Olympics.

Embid was a finalist for the MVP award in the Rio Games and won it in his final Olympics appearance, defeating former U.S. Olympian Chris Paul.

The U.K. forward was named the MVP at the 2016 Olympics and has been a consistent top-10 scorer in the NBA.

Embicid averaged a triple-double in his first two seasons in the league, including a career-high 22 points in the 2017-18 season.

He was a second-team All-NBA pick after averaging 17.3 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

The Raptors have had two other All-Stars on their roster: Jonas Valanciunas was a third-team selection in 2015-16, and Amir Johnson is third on the team in assists with 13.8 per game this season.

The Sixers are also looking to add depth to the bench and have selected Tyler Ennis, a big man with size and length, in the first round of the 2017 NBA draft.

The 6-foot-11, 230-pound Ennis is considered one of the best rebounders in the draft and could potentially take over the starting position.
