Philadelphia 76ers: Joel Embiid deserves massive contract
With Embiid recently signing a five-year $148 million contract extension, many are questioning whether he’s worth it. He is.
Joel Embiid has been a revelation upon his entrance into the league in 2014.

But there are plenty of reasons why the big man is worthy of the big-money offer. Here they are.
