Joel Embiid Signs Supermax Extension in Philadelphia

Joel Embiid has reportedly signed a four-year supermax contract extension with the Philadelphia 76ers worth an estimated $196M, which will run him through the 2026-27 season, with a player option in the final year.  
According to Bobby Marks, the breakdown is listed out below... 
Embiid missed the first two seasons of his career with injuries after being drafted third overall out of Kansas in 2014. However, with career averages of 24.8 ppg & 11.3 rpg to go with three All-NBA Team selections and three All-NBA Defensive Team nominations, his five seasons as a 76er have been stellar. Last year, Embiid was involved in MVP discussion with averages of 28.5 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.4 bpg while shooting 51.3 FG% & 37.7 3P%, leading Philadelphia to the best regular season record in the East at 49-23. 

One particularly interesting note in these contract negotiations is that Embiid represented himself, which is unusual in professional sports these days. Apparently, Joel implicitly trusts the process.
