Joel Embiid says he signed contract with Sixers, but team not ready to announce it just yet
Joel Embiid has been extremely active on Twitter this summer, but has mostly stuck with comedy, at least until now.His most recent effort there, however, may have broken some news that the Sixers weren’t quite ready to announce.

From Bob Cooney of Philly.com:
It’s tough to see any real harm being done here, especially because teams never announce the actual terms of player contracts, and there’s a rookie scale in place that gives us a fairly small range of what the dollar amount might actually be. And, it’s not like there was any question as to whether or not Embiid would ultimately be signed.But it is an example of why we can expect Embiid to slow down on Twitter once the season approaches -- something even he himself seems to be well aware is coming.
