Embiid had an absolutely fantastic season with the 76ers. Where he was the runner-up for the MVP title behind Nikola Jokic.
Embiid was excellent despite having injury problems and led the Philadelphia. 76ers to the first overall seed in the Eastern Conference.
Embiid was solid during the 2021 NBA Playoffs. He was crucial in the 76ers defeating the Washington Wizards in the first round, even playing through an injury. But the injury kept him out of the series against the Atlanta Hawks.
Per 75 possessions, his 32.9 points led the league, boosted by improvement in field-goal percentage (51.3), three-point percentage (37.7) and accuracy from the foul line (85.9 per cent).
Embiid’s new deal, which runs through the 2026-27 season, reportedly includes a player option for the final year, although the Sixers do not have the same protection in case of further injuries.
Embiid is yet to play more than 64 games in a regular season in the NBA, with the start to his career delayed by two years due to foot surgery.
