    Pre season Embiid is looking great. Damn. NBA needs more players like him. Please stay healthy and sprain your ankle against the Raptors lol.


    That's amazing. Philly is such a wild card - so much talent, so many question marks.

    The Process will be screwed if he can't stay healthy, will be interesting to see what happens

    But with Embiid playing 31 games, they could have a likely incentive for playing 30 games, and an unlikely one for playing 60, for example. And the likely one can be big, but even if it only matched the 15% from the unlikely incentive, that still cuts his 30M per year down to 20M per year if he misses too much time.

    You can basically make whatever countable stat an incentive, plus league awards, with some few exceptions. It has to be a positive accomplishment though.

    As for likely versus unlikely, it's simple. If your last season would have fulfilled the criteria, it's a likely incentive. If not, unlikely. Lowry has a games played incentive in his new deal, which is currently considered unlikely, because he missed so much time last season.

    Unlikely incentives are limited to 15%. Likely ones can make up everything above the minimum salary.

    Also, the 148 v 178 is not incentives, just whether he's eligible for the supermax extension come next summer when it kicks in.
    yeah that 2nd part i get, but some pundits seem to be talking about potential salary cap relief if he gets injured / misses time. sure sounds like incentives to me. and given the guy's played 30 games in 3 years I don't see games played incentives as being particularly likely.

    who adjudicates these incentives?

    first tweet seems wrong. aren't incentives limited to like $15M? Plus i don't think they change the cap number.

    So Philly has given Joel Embiid....per Woj...a 5 year 148$M deal....
    That’s a lot of money for a guy who has played in 30 odd games in 3 years...

    Smart money move or playing with fire?

    Pretty pumped for McKinnie. The only real question now is if KJ can also earn the 15th spot. With OG coming back soon I wouldn't bet on it, but he's still got time to make an impression. Alonzo's got legit athleticism, is light on his feet, and his shot looks ok. I loved his comments about this offense generating a lot of open corner 3s when it's run properly.

    I expect an uptick in accuracy with these days of rest/practice. It should be fun to watch when the shots are actually falling.
