After the trade deadline, the team cannot trade James Harden since he has a player option next year which is worth $35.6M.
This trade would result in the 76ers crossing the tax apron of ($156.9M) while hardcapped. Therefore this trade is not possible. Remove $2.7M of incoming value to remain below the hard cap.
Hard Cap Reasons
Used more than taxpayer portion ($6,479,000.00) of their mid-level exception to sign P.J. Tucker
($10,490,000).. Used their bi-annual exception to sign Danuel House Jr.
76ers are unable to complete this trade. Since they are a taxpaying team, they are only able to take back 125% of the salary they are sending out, plus $100,000.
76ers can only take back $41.3M in salary based on the amount they are sending out.
Cut $230K from the 76ers incoming trade value to make this trade successful for the 76ers.
RJ Barrett is on a rookie contract and signed an extension that is to begin the following season. Therefore, he has what is known as a "poison pill" contract. He can no longer be traded for a player making equal money. Instead, his current salary is averaged along with the salaries he is to receive in his extension, and that average becomes his incoming salary for trade purposes. His outgoing value for the Knicks will be $10.9M while his incoming value for the receiving team will be $23.5M.
