Joel Embiid is a Laker. Maybe. Well, we won’t really know until Thursday night, but this deleted tweet might have an idea.

According to Embiid, his buddy was having a little fun. Though LA fans probably don’t like jokes too much right now.
Embiid said that was a friend playing with his phone. Unless the Lakers have found a way to already make a selection, or get the #1 pick.

If Embiid does slide to the Lakers, and his injury concerns fade away, Los Angeles might just have the steal of the draft.
