After the Philadelphia 76ers’ disappointing playoffs exit, the future of Joel Embiid, James Harden and the team has been put into question. There have been several trade rumblings involving the team, many of which point to the Sixers being forced to blow up the roster. Among the recent rumors include the New York Knicks potentially making a play to acquire Embiid from the City of Brotherly love.

According to a report, the Knicks have shown interest in Embiid since the middle of the 2022-23 season. And after the Sixers’ playoff disaster, beliefs intensified that New York could revisit talks about trading for the big man.

While it’s definitely exciting to see a potential Jalen Brunson-Joel Embiid pairing in the Big Apple, fans shouldn’t get their hopes up. Apparently, there is really nothing much on the Embiid-to-Knicks rumors, with NBA insider Marc Stein noting that it’s all media talk right now.
