Joel Embiid Net Worth $147 Million
Born in Yaounde, Cameroon, Embiid is the son of Thomas Embiid, a military officer, and Christine. He has always been a sports enthusiast and was even set to play professional volleyball in Europe, but at the age of fifteen, he started playing organized basketball, and was eventually discovered in a basketball camp by Luc Mbah a Moute, a former NBA player and fellow Cameroonian himself, Mbah a Moute helped him move to the United States to become a professional basketball player.
Embiid enrolled at Montverde Academy, the same school where his mentor Mbah a Moute went, but eventually transferred after being given a small amount of playing time. He moved to The Rock School in Gainesville, Florida, and when he became a senior he became a potential five-star recruit as assessed by Rivals.com.
In 2013, Embiid attended University of Kansas but after one year he decided to forego the remaining three years of his college education, and in 2014 declared for the NBA draft, being selected the third overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers. His entry to the NBA made him the third Cameroonian-born player to enter the league, after Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje and Luc Mbah a Moute, and his being signing certainly established his net worth.
Unfortunately, after signing with the 76ers, Embiid suffered a bone-related injury to his foot that caused him to miss most of the games in the 2014-2015 season. In 2016, he recovered from his injuries and was able to play, even being named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for January 16 to 22.
In early 2017, Embiid experienced another injury, on his left knee, which caused him to miss most of the rest of the 2016-2017 season, but before the season ended he recovered, and was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team, and subsequently he signed a five-year contract extension with the 76ers worth $148 million, with the ability to earn an additional $30 million, provided that he earns an All-NBA first-, second- or third-team selection or is named MVP for 2017-2018 season; this extension was a huge help in his income. Today, Embiid is still playing for the Philadelphia 76ers and is known famously known as “The Process”.
There is no information concerning Joel’s personal life, not even any rumours of romantic relationships, but is still single. He had a younger brother named Arthur who died in a car crash in 2014.
