With his colorful personality and emerging talent on the court, there is no denying that Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is one of the NBA's most marketable stars. He has recently agreed to become a brand ambassador for the gaming headset brand, HyperX.
Embiid will take part in several company activities as part of the deal. He is already a big gamer off the court, regularly competing in NBA2K18.
HyperX already has a relationship with Team Dignitas, the esports team that is owned by the Sixers. They have sold over three million headsets worldwide.
Embiid was recently named to his first All-Star team and is currently averaging 23.7 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. He has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week twice this season.
After his first two NBA seasons were wiped out due to injury, Embiid played in 30 games last year and averaged 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. He was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.
Philadelphia originally selected Embiid third overall in the 2014 NBA Draft. He was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a second-team All-Big 12 selection in his only college season at the University of Kansas.
