Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers have extended their relationship for at least four more years. The Cameroonian just signed a massive 4-year, $196 million deal with the Sixers, confirming he’s committed to this team on the long haul.
Embiid is the main figure of the team and even though Ben Simmons is probably leaving the franchise this summer, the center is ready to lead this team to the promised land regardless of who stays or leaves.
After inking this incredible deal, JoJo took to social media to show his excitement about his future and the Sixers’.
There’s no place like PHILADELPHIA!!! Excited to continue working towards bringing a title home and eventually retire here #PHILLY
These words must have sounded like music for Sixers fans. They have trusted the process during all these years, and Embiid is ready to pay all the love back. He’s ready to win a championship at Wells Fargo Center, and this might be the first step to achieve that.
Philadelphia looked really strong last season but things fell apart in the NBA playoff, including the Ben Simmons collapse that left them helpless against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks. This upcoming season will see Philly competing against fierce rivals, trying to win the Larry O’Brien trophy in a stacked Eastern Conference.
It remains to be seen if he’ll have Ben Simmons by his side, but Joel is ready to help this team reach the next level and take the NBA title home.
