This seemed to be in response to some recent comments Embiid made, both to the media and on social media, that hinted he may be unhappy in Philly.

There have been whispers for months that the Sixers may be better off if they were to trade Embiid and build around Ben Simmons.
When Embiid missed nine games with a dislocated finger, Philly went 6-3 and seemed to function better on the offensive end.
It’s no secret that the Heat have been in the market for a second star since acquiring Butler last July. If Embiid were to become available this offseason, one should expect Pat Riley to pounce on the opportunity.
