Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Philadelphia 76ers

The NBA salary cap may be increasingly exponentially, but the salaries on rookie contracts aren’t rising nearly as rapidly, and given how heavily the 76ers are leaning on young players during their lengthy rebuilding process, those rookie contracts are featured prominently on the team’s books. As a result, the Sixers will head into the 2016 offseason with a ton of cap space once again, and will have to work hard to get anywhere near the salary floor. New general manager Bryan Colangelo has talked about focusing on winning rather than prolonging the 76ers’ rebuild even further, but unless Philadelphia goes out and signs multiple max free agents, the club almost certainly won’t make use of all its cap space. Expect the Sixers to continue to use much of that excess room to accommodate trades, as the team prepares to bring in a few more inexpensive rookies.

1. Rescue Chicago: Take Derrick Rose and Mike Dunleavy’s $28M, give them TJ McConnell and Richaun Holmes. They need a point guard, backup or otherwise.They also need center. Both on three year minimum salary deals. Price: Chicago’s rights to SAC17 >10. Otherwise, Chicago will only have about $20M to get 4 or 5 players when Gasol and Noah leave. 2. Evan Fournier: Sign and trade with Orlando. Fournier gets a fifth year at the maximum. Orlando gets PHI19. They already have Payton, Oladipo, & Hezonja. 3.
