Joel Embiid, the number three overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, has officially signed his first NBA contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. If things pan out, hopefully the 76ers are the only team that Embiid will sign with during his NBA lifespan.
The terms haven’t been disclosed, but we will release them as soon as we find them out.
76ers GM Sam Hinkie had a conference call with the media today and also gave some insight on Embiid’s injury rehab so far. Embiid is rumored to be out for all of 2014-15, but Hinkie isn’t giving specifics.
It’s very early in the rehab process for Embiid, since he’s still in the boot, but some update is better than no update, right? I’m all in on Joel Embiid for three-point champion in 2015-2016 also.
