Philadelphia 76ers ownership reverses course, won’t force staff to take pay cuts over coronavirus pandemic

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Only a day after announcing the cuts, Harris released a second statement through ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, explaining that his staff and players had convinced him he’d made the wrong decision. Although the Sixers have reversed course, the NHL is temporarily cutting salaries of league employees by 25 percent as the coronavirus outbreak continues, according to Emily Kaplan of ESPN.

We can’t pinpoint what exactly caused the charge against this policy, but we do know that 76ers big man Joel Embiid planned to donate an undetermined amount of money to those impacted by the pay cut, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. This would have come in addition to the $500,000 donation he is making to help fight COVID-19.

It should be noted that players were not involved in this potential pay cut. Teams do not have the right to unilaterally enforce pay cuts on their players.
