Sixers, Embiid reportedly agree on max contract extension
Report | Joel Embiid agrees to max extension with 76ers
10 October, 2017, 02:32
The Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly locked up center Joel Embiid for the long term on a max deal that could become a $178 million super-max deal if he meets conditions.
The contract is the maximum Embiid can earn on the rookie scale, Wojnarowski reported, and he can earn more if he reaches different criteria such as making an All-NBA team or earning Most Valuable Player honors.
Those 31 games almost earned Embiid the NBA Rookie of the Year Award last season, as he poured in 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game in just over 25 minutes. According to Wojnarowski, the deal contains some "salary cap protection" for the 76ers if Embiid suffers a long-term injury, though it's unclear what the guarantees and non-guarantees are at this point.
It's a lot of money to pay for the oft-injured Embiid, but Philadelphia seems committed to him.
Embiid will continue to have restrictions on his playing time coming into the 2017-18 season, which is set to begin for the 76ers on October 18 against the Washington Wizards.
There is no doubt about Embiid's talent. The Sixers realize how important Embiid is to the future of this franchise, which is why they were quick to lock him up.
In September, the team plucked away Dr. C. Medina Leal from FC Barcelona to oversee their medical staff, and general manager Bryan Colangelo has stated that he would be very involved in Embiid's recovery from meniscus surgery.
The real interesting aspect of this contract is the kind of injury provisions that have been put in place to assist the Sixers if Embiid were to miss a large portion of games. The Sixers also held Embiid out for at least one game in back-to-back sets and his limited playing time was one reason he was not a strong enough candidate to win Rookie of the Year.
