The Philadelphia 76ers have re-signed forward/center Joel Embiid to a five-year contract extension. He will receive $148 million over the lifetime of his deal.

His deal is a “super max” designation — and he could possibly get more money if he reaches all of the accomplishments that the 76ers put into the deal. He could potentially reach $178 million should he get all the other money in the deal.

He’s receiving a massive deal despite just playing in 31 NBA games in the first three seasons of his career. He was a Rookie of the Year candidate last season despite his limited play.

Embiid was the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. This deal also shows the fans, who have been through a lot in recent years, that he’s a cornerstone player, and the 76ers are focused on winning now after they acquired Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, along with Ben Simmons finally playing this season.

With his limited durability, the 76ers have stipulations in the deal in case he misses significant time.
