The Philadelphia 76ers quickly hit when free agency kicked in when they brought in PJ Tucker on a deal on June 30, about a minute after she went free agency. Philadelphia has been associated with Tucker due to his apparent ties to James Harden and President Daryl Morey and the two parties. got things done quickly.
Because of how quickly things were moving, there were rumors in the league that the NBA office would conduct their own investigation of the Sixers into these moves.
Now the thoughts are correct. The League will investigate not only the signing of Tucker, but also the re-signing of Harden, as well as the involvement of Danuel House Jr. in the deal. The league is suspicious of why Harden took such a big pay cut to free up financial flexibility if he and the 66ers didn’t know Tucker would join Philadelphia.
Maury was caught faking earlier in Philadelphia so that he could play a part in this investigation by the league office. Either way, it will be interesting to see what the league finds here as they look into what Maury and the 66ers allegedly did before the free agency period.
