Joel Embiid agrees to $148 million extension with 76ers

With incentives, the deal could be worth as much as $178 million.
Philadelphia had those injuries in mind with this extension, as Wojnarowskireported it includes some "salary-cap protection" for the team if he suffers another serious setback.
This was the logic that Bryan Colangelo's predecessor used when he made a decision to select Embiid at No. 3 overall in 2014. What if Joel Embiid is never healthy? He finally made his National Basketball Association debut in 2016-17 and was fantastic in limited action, averaging 20.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.5 blocks in 31 games. Aside from injuries, Parker has showed talent and potential to be worth similar to what Wiggins and Embiid will receiver. How exactly that will be determined will likely be exceedingly complicated, though the initial guess would be it's a combination of straight guaranteed money combined with additional guarantees based on games-played benchmarks. The impact he singlehandedly had on the Sixers previous year was astounding, and proves his worth.
Marks predicted that if Embiid were to fail to appear on the 76ers' active roster for "fewer than 51 games" during the 2018-19 season, Philadelphia could "reduce the remaining compensation owed" to 50 percent in each year of the deal. The team had a net rating of +4.1 in the games he played past year, but were -8.1 without him. The question is how often they'll get to have Embiid on the floor.
The Sixers are counting on Embiid and No. 1 overall picks Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz to carry the team from the bottom of the league into an Eastern Conference playoff team. This extension could be viewed as a vote of confidence toward his long-term health. While Embiid's injury history is certainly extensive, all of his issues have been unrelated. Yes, he'd already missed the end of his lone college season with a back injury.
He missed the previous two seasons because of two surgeries to fix the navicular bone in his right foot. In order to cut down on his turnovers, Embiid must improve his ability to recognize when the double team is coming and the ability to pass out of it, preventing live-ball giveaways. Medina's staff was on the cutting during their time in Barcelona, and will certainly work closely with the 7-foot-2 center for the forseeable future to ensure a long and prosperous career in Philadelphia. He averaged 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds.
