NBA Draft 2018: Mo Bamba Training to Become the Next Joel Embiid (Videos)

Mo Bamba and Joel Embiid share the same shooting coach and physical attributes, so it's no surprise that the former Westtown and Texas star is set to utilize that skill set in the same way.

Bamba, who was at Wells Fargo Center for Game 1 of the Philadelphia 76ers’ first-round series with the Miami Heat, has shadowed and worked out with Embiid since early April.

He’ll now attempt to channel his same game. The connection came via Drew Hanlen, who has been working with Bamba since he declared for the draft.

Bamba, who has been ranked in the top 10 among all draft-eligible prospects on latest big boards, has been rising the past few weeks. The 2018 NBA Draft will take place June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
