Joel Embiid

Embiid, one of the NBA's most talented and popular young players, has the ability to earn an additional $30 million - bringing the value of the contract to as much as $178 million - if he earns an All-NBA first-, second- or third-team selection, or is named MVP this season, league sources said.

Embiid, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, missed the first two seasons of his NBA career because of a pair of surgeries to fix the navicular bone in his right foot.

The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to a five-year, $148 million max rookie contract extension for fourth-year center Joel Embiid, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

There's a pretty good chance Embiid only plays half of the Sixers' games this season, the last before this monstrous extension kicks in. Despite averaging just 25.4 minutes per night, Embiid scored 20.2 points and grabbed 7.8 rebounds and shot almost 37 percent from 3-point range.

The top two players in that draft, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, have played more games than Embiid. Aside from injuries, Parker has showed talent and potential to be worth similar to what Wiggins and Embiid will receiver. Those guys don't come along very often - especially not when paired with an incredibly likable personality that has turned Embiid into a sensation in Philadelphia. But according to the ESPN report, the contract includes some protection for the Sixers should Embiid continue to be too injured to play.

Joel Embiid has everything an National Basketball Association franchise could hope for in a cornerstone.

Embiid scored 20 or more points in 19 of his 31 games last season, including a streak of 10 straight that was the longest by a rookie since Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers recorded 14 consecutive in 2011.

Embiid was scheduled to arrive in Boston on Monday night to join his teammates. While Embiid's injury history is certainly extensive, all of his issues have been unrelated. The Sixers had until October 16 to extend Embiid, and got it done a week prior to that. He would have been a restricted free agent after the 2017-18 season had he not reached agreement with Philly by the October 16 deadline.

While comparing him to Tim Duncan, Brown said Embiid is the kind of player who can turn the fortunes of a franchise. I hope he will stay healthy.

Embiid is the first big name member of the 2014 draft class to be re-signed, with the likes of Andrew Wiggins and Marcus Smart rumoured to be re-signed long-term in the coming days.

The back injury he suffered during his only season at college has not been an issue since.
