Sixers looking to sign Joel Embiid to contract extension this summer

25 Juin, 2017, 19:46 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

During the second round of the draft on Thursday, some fans at the Barclays Center made a decision to have a little fun by spoiling the news of a few picks. He had told her that he really believes in his players. "I look at that as something good".

Fultz wraps up his article by saying that he intends to come to Philly and take the process to new heights through his work ethic and buying into a team mentality. LaVar Ball had said his son would only play for the Lakers, and it was clear that would happen when Lonzo got a phone call with the Lakers on the clock. Fultz noted that the Sixers somehow found out he loves Chick-fil-A so much that they had sandwiches at his workout with them that day.

Simmons missed his rookie season with a broken right foot. "It's something that nearly all kids dream of and for me to do this, it just goes down in the history book and it's a milestone for me". "We anticipate a full, healthy roster".

Embiid isn't due to become an unrestricted free agent until 2019. We all get to find out what franchise did their homework and who just pulled a "half sleep Phil Jackson" move during draft evaluation.

Coach Brett Brown had said all year that Simmons would open next season as the point guard.

The 1.93m guard became the second consecutive number one overall pick by Philadelphia, following forward Ben Simmons a year ago.

No worries, for now.

"I figured out I had a chance to make it there [the NBA] probably in my 11th grade", said Fultz, who played for the University of Washington Huskies last season. They have filled out their guard positions, which has been thin for the past few seasons and they did so with two young, athletic and explosive players. "I think our games could help each other out a lot".

Signing Joel Embiid to a contract extension is one of the 76ers' offseason priorities, according to managing owner Josh Harris. To think that you're going to go into a season with a 19 year old (Fultz), a 20 year old (Simmons) and Joel Embiid, as much as we love him and see how special he is, the reality is those three players have played a cumulative 31 National Basketball Association games. Simmons has never played in an National Basketball Association game and will only make his debut this season. As for fans, they were still buzzing.

When you might get drafted to a city with no Chick-fil-A.

Given Embiid's injury history, however, it's far from guaranteed that he will stay healthy all year.

They may have to wait two more years for Latvian center, and first-round pick, Anzejs Pasecniks.

Because what really stood out to me was the enthusiasm, and what this Sixers team is starting to mean to Philadelphia.

The Bulls also held the 38th pick in the second round.
