Joel Embiid is trying to get LeBron James to join the Sixers
Familiar names like Carmelo Anthony, Pau Gasol, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, Kyle Lowry, and Lance Stephenson are available to the highest bidder and competition for their signatures has begun.
The big fish, of course, is LeBron James who opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat. While no one knows for sure what King James will do, a return to Miami certainly can’t be ruled out. In the event that doesn’t happen, there’s no shortage of players who would love to have James on their team.
Newly drafted Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is among them and reached out to James via Twitter on Tuesday.
@KingJames hey bro hope you're having a good day…… Want to join us in philly?? Peace

The number of of mentions James receives is astronomical so it’s not out of the question that he didn’t see Embiid’s tweet. So, the third overall pick in last month’s draft decided to politely remind James he had not yet heard back.

Sometimes, persistence pays off. In this case, it will probably take a bit more than that for us to see LeBron James in a Sixers uniform.
