After LeBron-to-Cavs, quick glance at Sixers free agency
As expected, James’ decision will have a trickle-down effect on many teams in the league, perhaps including the 76ers. Sitting about $30 million under the league’s $63 million salary cap, the Sixers are in a great position to take on salaries from other teams. The benefits would be that the Sixers would be taking on expiring contracts and they can also demand some compensation from teams for helping them out.
“We’re in a very good position,” said general manager Sam Hinkie. “If we can help other teams out by taking on an expiring contract, we can benefit by getting something in return.”
