Report: Kansas center Joel Embiid to enter NBA draft Published: March 27, 2014

Sources have told Yahoo Sports that Kansas freshman center Joel Embiid will enter the 2014 NBA Draft.

Despite a recent back injury that kept him out of the NCAA Tournament, Embiid could still challenge teammate Andrew Wiggins and Duke forward Jabari Parker to become the top pick in the draft. The 7-footer was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in his first season at KU.

Embiid averaged 11.2 point, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in 23 minutes for the Jayhawks.
