The Philadelphia 76ers made a risky move of signing center Joel Embiid to a long term contract. Embiid has struggled with injuries during his first three seasons in NBA playing a total of 31 games. Last season saw him prove his talent with 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game before injuries forced him to end his season early.

Philadelphia agreed to an extension worth $148 million over five seasons. Embiid is expected to be one of the pillars in building a contender with Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz. The potential of injuries continuing to hurt his career is a fear, but the 76ers believe his talent is worth the risk.
