Embiid Signs Long Term

Joel Embiid Inks Massive Extension to Remain with Philadelphia Sixers

Joel Embiid didn’t need to play an entire season to earn the Philadelphia 76ers’ trust.

On Monday fan-favourite and face of the Sixers franchise inked a five-year, $148-million designated rookie-scale max extension. Though the Kansas alum appeared in only 31-games since entering the league in 2014, Embiid has shown that when healthy, he has the potential to be one of the better, most versatile big men in the game. The signing was first reported by none other than Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

“If Embiid meets the super max criteria, he could earn as much as $178 million on the contract,” Wojnarowski wrote.

A number three overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, Embiid averaged 20.2-points, 7.8-rebounds, and 2.5-blocks per game on minute restrictions last season en route to a first-team All-Rookie nod.

As the 76ers are set to enter the new season, a young core of Embiid, Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz, and Dario Saric has all of Philly buzzing as even a playoff spot doesn’t seem that improbable anymore.
