Joel Embiid Makes Free Agent Pitch To LeBron, Gets No Response
Several teams are rumored to have a shot at signing LeBron James this offseason, but the Philadelphia 76ers are definitely not one of them. The Sixers were awful last year, and capped off their 26-game losing streak by finishing the season with a 19-63 record.
