76ers put trust in oft-injured Embiid as franchise player

FILE – In this Sept. 25, 2017, file photo, Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid poses for a photograph during media day at the NBA basketball team’s practice facility, in Camden, N.J. Philadelphia bet its future on Embiid, signing one of the more talented, yet injury-prone, players in the game to a league maximum contract extension. A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Embiid and the Sixers have agreed on a $148 million, five-year extension and it could increase even more if the 7-foot center reaches certain incentives. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, because the contract has not been officially announced.(AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)
