    08/18/2021 at 3:13 AM CEST . / Philadelphia The Cameroonian pivot Joel embiid closed this Tuesday a new contract with the Philadelphia 76ers for four years that will guarantee $ 196 million. The Philadelphia team today posted a photo of Embiid and team owner Josh Harris signing the contract with the announcement: “@joelembiid is not going anywhere.” The second in the Most Valuable Player vote of the NBA last season and four times All-Star was part of the second team of the NBA with averages of 28.5 points and 10.6 rebounds in 51 regular season games in 2020-2021.

Including his current contract and its extension, Yaoundé’s will earn a total of $ 261 million until the end of the 2026-2027 academic year. The new contract includes a player option for the final year, but not the same provisions as protect the Sixers in the event of a catastrophic injury on Embiid’s back or feet, like the five-year, 147.7 million deal they signed in 2017.

    SentinelOne Exceeds IPO Goal to Raise $1.2 Billion Cramers Mad Money Recap: Facebook, Merck, Nvidia The Philadelphia 76ers finished the 2020-21 season with the best record in the Eastern Conference for the first time in 20 years. But, they were ultimately unable to advance past the second round of the postseason as they fell to the Atlanta hawks in seven games in the semifinals. After a disappointing end to a promising season, the Sixers enter the offseason facing a plethora of important questions. Here's a look at four of the most pressing. © Provided by CBS Sports 1. Will the Sixers offer Embiid an extension? Joel Embiid has clearly established himself as one of the absolute best players in the NBA, and the centerpiece of the 76ers, both literally and figuratively. Embiid averaged 28.5 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.8 assist, 1.4 blocks and a steal per game for Philadelphia this past season, and he was arguably the most impactful player in the league when he was out on the floor. As a result, he finished second in MVP voting behind...
    Getty Philadelphia 76ers F/C Paul Reed defends Facundo Campazzo of the Denver Nuggets. The evolution of Philadelphia 76ers rookie Paul Reed has been a major point of intrigue this season. In a year packed with positive developments, the former second-round pick’s “out the mud” journey has captured the imaginations of fans, pundits and players alike. And the latest chapter of his underdog story was one of the best yet. Facing an Orlando Magic squad that it had just beaten by 25 points, the top-seeded Sixers crew opted to empty its bench for its regular-season finale. With nothing left to play for, the club rolled into battle on Sunday with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Danny Green, Seth Curry and Matisse Thybulle all resting on the sidelines. After logging less than 20 minutes for the entire month of May to that point, it was finally Reed’s time to shine, and shine he did. In 23 minutes off the bench, the 21-year-old set new career highs with 17 points and 12 rebounds. He also added three assists, one steal and one...

The final days of the NBA’s regular season are winding down and with that, each MVP candidate’s last gasp efforts in convincing voters why they are most deserving of the hardware. For most of the season, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has been at or near the top of a packed list of contenders for the award, but one NBA legend thinks that Sixers fans can expect the big man to remain an MVP favorite for years to come too. The latest Sixers news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Sixers newsletter here! Join Heavy on Sixers! During a discussion with NBA.com writer Shaun Powell this week about Embiid and Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic – both centers – being the top MVP candidates, Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon had some interesting thoughts on the 27-year-old Cameroonian. “He didn’t capitalize (in the post) as much in the previous years, even though he has all the post moves. And he’s still...

The end of the regular season can be a drag. With the best teams biding their time until the playoffs, and the worst ones mailing it in to maximize draft position, the last chunk of the calendar often feels like filler. The Philadelphia 76ers fall in the former category. Back among the East’s beasts after a down year in 2020, the Sixers are championship contenders once again. Joel Embiid is having an MVP-level season, anchoring both the offense and defense like few players can. Helping him out are Ben Simmons, a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, and Tobias Harris, who is doing just enough in a secondary scoring role. Danny Green and Seth Curry, the fourth and fifth starters, were simple adds that are paying huge dividends. By swapping out Al Horford and Josh Richardson, two guys who do their best on the inside, with Green and Curry, two...

With the Cleveland Cavaliers leading the Philadelphia 76ers, 112-106, with 5.4 seconds remaining, Simmons brought the ball down the court and pulled up for three. It was maybe the most uncharacteristic and unexpected shot of his career and the fact that he made it is unbelievable. And if you had bet the under in this game, it was unforgivable.

    CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — Training camp continues for the Sixers as they prepare to tip off the season not too long from now. The Sixers are back in town and preparing for the season. The guys who make big bucks have hauled in most of the press, but there are a couple of players who need to be on the money in order for the team to succeed. The Sixers’ schedule tips off in three weeks, and while there are some fresh faces on the roster and the sidelines, many key pieces remain from last season. Matisse Thybulle and Shake Milton are back and will likely be asked to play important roles. Before the season was put on hiatus in March, Milton was having a coming-out party. “I tried to take that momentum into the offseason and hopefully continue on into this season. I’m feeling healthy, I’m feeling confident and I’m just excited to see what this team can do,” Milton said. Defensively, Thybulle is already one of the most impressive players in the league. Now, it’s about expanding his...

    For the second time in three seasons, the Celtics and 76ers will square off in a playoff series. That’s right folks, the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers are set to play each other this postseason. But since Boston’s 4-1 trouncing of Philly two summers ago, a lot has changed. The Celtics exchanged Kyrie Irving for Kemba Walker and got a healthy Gordon Hayward. They also traded Aron Baynes to the Phoenix Suns and let Al Horford sign with the Sixers, opting to go to the flea market for big men. Philadelphia, meanwhile, pushed its chips in for Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, and turned the first gamble into Horford and Josh Richardson. The disparity is evident: The Celtics will pay their centers $14.2 million this season, while Horford and Joel Embiid will combine for $55.5 million of the Sixers’ cap. Boston is cohesive and versatile, while Philly is talented and enormous. To this point, Boston’s method has been much more effective. The Celtics finished this season with twice as many wins as losses at 48-24, and end with the East’s...
