Joel Embiid has big potential to be a star but injury may hold him back
There is no denying that the 23 year old big man who was drafted 3rd overall 2014 got a lot of upsides and potentials. In 30 games last year, he averages 20 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists with 2 blocks. This line is amazing for a rookie.
With contract about to expire and extension talks are around the corner, the team of Joel Embiid is looking to make the young center rich. According to Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier, Joel Embiid team would like to negotiate on a 100 million dollar contract to keep him in Philadelphia, but is he worth the risk/s?
Joel Embiid was limited in minutes last year and while he expresses his intention to play more minutes, he was held back by the medical team to ensure that the young center stays healthy due to injuries.
