Joel Embiid stats: What are his numbers with the Philadelphia 76ers?

Joel Embiid stats: Joel Embiid has spent seven seasons with the 76ers. In 393 regular-season games, he averaged 27.2 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists. He was chosen to play in five All-Star games. In 65 games this season, Joel Embiid has averaged 33.3 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 4.2 assists. He was picked third overall by the 76ers in the 2014 NBA draught after one year of collegiate basketball with the Kansas Jayhawks. Numerous foot and knee problems kept him out of the game for two seasons, until he was nominated to the NBA All-Rookie First Team despite playing only 31 games.

Embiid is a six-time NBA All-Star, a four-time All-NBA Team member, and a three-time All-Defensive Team member. He’s been dubbed “the Process” after 76ers supporters urged him to “follow the process” during the Sam Hinkie era. Embiid topped the NBA in scoring during the 2021-22 season, becoming the first center and seven-footer to do so since Shaquille O’Neal (2000), and was also the first center to average more than 30 points per game since Moses Malone (1982), as well as the first foreign player to do so.

Joel Embiid signed with the 76ers in 2014

Embiid declared for the 2014 NBA draught on April 9, 2014, foregoing his last three years of collegiate eligibility. He underwent surgery on a broken navicular bone in his right foot on June 20, 2014, and was later declared out for four to six months. Six days later, he was chosen third overall by the Philadelphia 76ers. After Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje and Luc Mbah a Moute, he became the third Cameroonian-born NBA player, as well as the highest-selected Cameroonian.

Embiid signed his rookie scale deal with the 76ers on August 26, 2014. Due to a broken navicular bone in his foot, he was eventually judged unlikely to participate in the 2014-15 season. He missed the entire 2015–16 season.
