Brett Brown job security
this snippet of an article is why Elton brand should be sacked and not Brett Brow, its likely brown is gone but Elton brand has destroyed the future unless he can pull of some remarkable trades to free up some cap space to re balance the team.
Simmons and Joel Embiid are both owed around $US29 million next season. But it's their teammates who are the problem.
Tobias Harris, who was unable to step up in Simmons’ absence, will cash in over $34 million next year on a deal that runs all the way until the 2023/24 season, when he’ll be owed $39 million.
Al Horford had been demoted to the bench before Philly’s Australian star got injured. He will make approx. $27 million next season, and around that for the two seasons that follow.
Meanwhile, Josh Richardson, who is heading into the final two years of his deal, will make nearly $11 million in the 2020/21 season.
Point is, with the exception of Richardson, the Sixers have a whole lot of money — just over $120 million ($A168m) — committed to four players they already know can’t play together.
And none of those contracts are running out any time soon.
