James Harden opting out opens up the possibility for him to be paid low enough that the 76ers can use their mid-tier non-taxpayer exemption.

Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer:

However, multiple league sources say Tucker will prefer the Sixers’ three-year, $30 million offer to stay with Miami or return to Milwaukee after free agency begins Thursday at 6:00 p.m. Tucker could be guaranteed $27 million with available incentives that could push it up to $30 million, sources said.

Three sources said Tucker is a “deal done” for the Sixers. A fourth source said he would be shocked if Tucker wasn’t in the Sixers’ uniform next season.

Free agency doesn’t open until tomorrow. It’s hard to see how a deal can be so secure – with such specific contract terms, no less – without interference.

Whether the NBA will investigate that is another question. The league is hot and cold about falsification. There are few predictions.

Perhaps there is no deal, and Pompey’s sources are just jumping ahead and speculating on the terms of the contract. philadelphia star Joel Embiid said he wanted to play with someone like Tucker. Harden played with Tucker in the Rockets when 76ers president Daryl Morey ran the Houston front office. It’s easy to connect the dots.

Of course, those connections would also give Philadelphia the opportunity to work back channels and get a deal with Tucker early on.
