Miami Honors Embry

Miami University honored NBA executive and basketball icon Wayne Embry and his late wife Theresa "Terri" Embry with the Freedom Summer of '64 Award during ceremonies outside Millett Hall Tuesday. According to Miami Board of Trustees Chairman David Budig, the Embrys, married 62 years, demonstrated an ongoing commitment to furthering issues of racial and social justice with selflessness, courage, and perseverance.
Embry played basketball for Miami from 1955-1958, becoming the first to score 1,000 career points and 1,000 carrer rebounds. Embry played in the NBA from 1958-1969, playing for the Cincinnati Royals, Boston Celtics, and the Milwaukee Bucks. Embry became the NBA's first black general manager in 1972, when he was appointed by the Bucks. Embry became vice president and general manager for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 1985, and rose to executive VP in 1994. Embry once again broke the racial barrier when he was named President and CEO of the Cavs in 1994. He currently serves as a senior advisor for the Toronto Raptors. The university also unveiled a statue of Embry making his famous hook shot at the front entrance to Millett Hall.
