Joel Embiid is one of the biggest superstars in the NBA today. The 26-year-old Cameroonian is the figurehead of the Philadelphia 76ers, a 7-foot behemoth with the skills and shooting of a guard and the post moves of an elite center. Last season, Embiid averaged 28.5 points and 10.6 rebounds per game while protecting the rim at an elite level, recording 1.4 blocks per game.
As long as Embiid remains healthy, he will be a top-10 NBA player for the foreseeable future. So what do his finances look like right now?
Joel Embiid's net worth is currently estimated to be about $35 million. Most of that money comes from his rookie contract, which Embiid signed after he was drafted in the 2015 NBA Draft. Embiid's rookie deal was worth $19 million over four years.
In 2017, Embiid signed a five-year maximum contract extension worth up to $147 million. He made $25 million in salary in the first season of the deal and his salary increased yearly. It runs through the 2022-23 season.
