Philadelphia center Joel Embiid has agreed to a five-year, $148 million designated rookie scale max extension, league sources told ESPN.

 

Never have I seen a player do so little and get a max contract like that. He can have all the skill in the world but until he can stay healthy it means nothing. Huge risk.

The Sixers have lost their [expletive]in minds. No way in hell would I give Embiid that. They continue to make sixer M.O. style [expletive]ups.

I wonder if he plays 200 more games in his career?


Don't feed the trolls.

If he doesn't play at least 70 games they are fools for this.

Greg Oden played more than Embiid has in his first three years.

I'm guessing he has to play a significant number of games to actually get paid that full amount, but still, no reason not to wait until the offseason for this.

This'll bite them in the ass. Guy as of now is a nothing prospect. I don't care if some guard plays like Michael Jordan, puts up 40ppg 8rpg 8apg if the guy misses entire seasons every season and is on the floor for maybe 10-20 games a season if that then he's nothing

Embiid is incredibly talented but he's nothing until proven otherwise. If his body is suddenly able to stay on the floor that all changes but as of now he's useless

It seems that they deal is quite complicated and isn't fully guaranteed.

I believe that there are some stop gaps in there to ensure he doesn't get it all if he doesn't actually play. 


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Yep. Its only partially guaranteed for the last 4 years of the contract, so if he injures his back or feet they can waive him and get some of the money back. That makes it less risky. I dont think they could have made those restrictions if they had to match an offer next summer.

 

Still, i would have waited until next summer.

He's like the girlfriend who's always trying to kick drugs.

Good for a while. Even great.

Then relapse and you're left thinking what am i doing


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

A young marquee post player in today's NBA is going to get overpaid.

 

If it works out they have a better chance of keeping Simmons him knowing Embiid will be there. Philadelphia is already a relatively big city with a rich basketball history, why leave for anyone else

Reasons why Embiid should have chose the Lakers.

 

(1) Twitter headquarters is in CA.

 

(2) Rihanna has a house in CA.

 

(3) The best Shirley Temples are in CA.
