The Sixers open a mini training camp of sorts on Tuesday ahead of next week’s first summer league to take place in Orlando. Nerlens Noel will be there and so will recent draft picks like K.J. McDaniels and Jerami Grant.

Joel Embiid, the Sixers’ top pick and the No. 3 overall selection in the draft, won’t be arriving in Philadelphia until Thursday when camp breaks up. Moreover, Embiid’s first order of business isn’t getting to the team’s practice gym for a workout and meeting the coaching staff -- folks he hasn’t yet met and had only a few conversations.

Instead, Embiid wants to get an authentic cheesesteak. The real deal.

“I like food, so the Philly Cheesesteak, I’m already on that,” Embiid said during a conference call on Monday. “As soon as I get there, that’s the first thing I’m getting.”

Embiid has never been to Philadelphia, a place he will call home for the foreseeable future. In fact, he never even worked out for the Sixers before the draft. After breaking his foot playing one-on-one in his new home base in Los Angeles, there isn’t much beyond rest Embiid has done lately.

That doesn’t mean Embiid isn’t thinking about his future as a player for the 76ers. Far from it. Gifted with a transcendent talent for a game he has played for just three years, Embiid has been thinking about workouts, his role in coach Brett Brown’s system and how he could transform the NBA.
