The Sixers’ Free Agents
The Sixers will have four unrestricted free agents this summer with Danny Green, Furkan Korkmaz, Dwight Howard and Mike Scott. The Sixers have a variety of bird rights on each of the before-mentioned players.
Before diving into each specific player, I’ll briefly go over how Bird Rights work within the NBA and how much exactly the Sixers can offer to each respective player – assuming the team and player have mutual interest in staying together for future seasons to come. If the Sixers were to retain Danny Green’s bird rights and re-sign him, they’d be given the taxpayer’s MLE. The Sixers could possibly do some salary cap gymnastics here to get them the full mid-level exception – if they were to deal Hill or waive and stretch his partially guaranteed deal and sign Green to a reasonable deal, that would put them below the tax line.
