Kansas basketball star Joel Embiid has reportedly declared for the NBA draft.
The star freshman center averaged 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks while at Kansas. The Cameroon native was projected to be the No. 1 in the June NBA draft before a back injury forced him to sit out the Big 12 and NCAA tournament. He is still projected to go between #1 and 5 and is drawing comparisons to Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon.
