Key Offseason Decisions

  • Will the 76ers guarantee Furkan Korkmaz for $1.7M? Considering Korkmaz turned in his best season in the NBA, and he provides shooting to a roster lacking in that skill, it’s likely he’ll be back.
  • How big of a hindrance a potentially large luxury tax bill in building the roster? Philadelphia is going to be a tax team. They may be the second-most expensive team in the NBA behind the Golden State Warriors. How far is ownership willing to go for a good, but not great team?

Projected Team Salary

$155,881,508

Unless Elton Brand has some big trades lined up, Philadelphia probably bringing back the same crew as last season. The big difference is that they’ll be led by Doc Rivers instead of Brett Brown. The roster issues from last season still remain. Given a large looming tax bill, will the Sixers owners sign off on deals that bring on more money? (@KeithSmithNBA)

Cap Space Forecast

-$46,741,508 (19th out of 30). $9,050,567 over the Luxury Tax.
