Joel Hans Embiid is a Cameroonian professional basketball player that plays for the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA. Joel is also a French and American citizen.

He played college basketball for Kansas Jayhawks for one season before being selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the third pick overall in the 2014 NBA Draft.

His debut was postponed by many foot and knee ailments for two seasons, but in 2016–2017, despite appearing in just 31 games, he was chosen to the NBA All–Rookie First Team.
