According to the CBA, teams must have at least 90% of the salary cap, or $52.81 million, on the books this season.
With the acquisition of Tony Wroten from the Memphis Grizzlies, the Philadelphia 76ers now have 11 guaranteed deals (including 1st round picks) on the books for this upcoming season. New Sixers GM Sam Hinkie must find a way to add $10 million in cap space before the end of next season to make the cut.
The penalty for not making the cut is paying whatever you’re short by, so in this case the Sixers would have to pay $10 million. So, in other words, it’s not even really a big deal.
The Bulls could potentially flip Boozer (and EITHER Hinrich's expiring OR marquis teague and his potential if they want) and our 2014 first rounder to Philly for Thaddeus Young. Boozer doesn't help them terribly, which should help their tanking effort, and Young is an athletic 3-4 tweener who could come in helpful (and has been fairly effective against Miami, especially lately). We could perhaps get them to throw in Kwame Brown to be our backup 5.
Gets Philly to the minimum (which really isn't a big deal as mentioned before) and helps the Bulls get under the tax line.
