Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie is trying to get Joel Embiid to give him a hand on Twitter now that the rookie has signed his first contract with the team.
"I told him I want him to take over my Twitter account," Hinkie said. "Maybe my followers will pick up. I think I'm at 20 or so right now."
Hinkie also told reporters that he thinks Embiid has done well so far to avoid the many dangers that come with social media.
"Maybe he'll touch the stove and get burned a time or two," he said, "but I think he'll find his way and be fine. But you can be assured it is the sort of thing we talk about."
If at any point this season you hop on Twitter and see the Sixers GM wooing Rihanna, go ahead and assume it is Embiid.
