NBA on ESPN/Twitter

Joel Embiid is proving that, when he plays, he's worth every penny of his massive new contract.

The Philadelphia 76ers center was active early in his preseason debut Wednesday, as he hit his team's first basket and finished the half with 20 points, seven rebounds, and a block ... in just 11 minutes of floor time.

Here were his top plays:

Didn't count, but Embiid shows range with long bomb from the logo
