2014 NBA Draft Profile: Joel Embiid

Joel Embiid was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year after setting a Kansas freshman record with 72 blocked shots. He was also named to the All-Big 12 Second Team and Big 12 All-Defensive Team, while finishing second in conference play in blocks (2.6 per game) and sixth in rebounds (8.1). The Cameroon native set KU freshman records in field goal percentage (62.1) and rebound average (8.1), and also led the team with eight double-doubles. A stress fracture in Embiid's back sidelined him for the last six games of his season, which included the Big 12 Tournament and the NCAA tournament.

*Embiid did not participate at the NBA Draft Combine.
