Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown spoke to Sixers reporters on Wednesday and gave an update on star big man Joel Embiid.

Brown said he’s very proud of Embiid, who has put in a lot of work during the NBA hiatus to get into the best shape possible.

“Let’s start with the respect and applause I give him for putting in time. There is nobody on our team that has put in more time than Joel Embiid,” Brett Brown said of the Sixers All-Star center, via Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice.
