Among others, Rose currently represents Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and now retired point guard Allen Iverson. Rose is also based out of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, located just outside of Philadelphia.
The 21-year-old Embiid won't be eligible for a contract extension until 2017, and is slated to become a restricted free agent in 2018.
