NBA looking into 76ers for potential interference

According to a source familiar with the investigation, the NBA is looking into the Philadelphia 76ers for potential interference in the free-agent signings of James Harden, P.J. Tucker

The team is assisting with the probe, the individual said while requesting anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

With a contract worth just over $68 million, Harden will get around $33 million this season and a further $35 million if he exercises his player option for the 2023–24 season. 

But compared to what he might have made under his prior contract, Harden will get around $14.5 million less this next season. 

Last month, Harden exercised his $47.4 million option for the next season but refused it because he wanted to give the 76ers freedom to make roster improvements and contend for a title.

There are concerns about Harden and the Sixers having "a handshake deal in place on a future contract," according to ESPN on Friday.
