What’s far more likely is that the long rumored Amar’e Stoudemire to Philadelphia deal gets done at the deadline. The Sixers take on Stoudemire’s $23 million salary cap number, which pushes them way over the minimum. They would only owe him roughly 30 percent of his remaining contract, so they’d end up paying him $7 million in cash and likely extract a draft pick or a rookie scale player for their troubles.
There’s a chance that the 76ers are actually good this season so adding Stoudemire may end up being a good move but either way it may end up being a necessary move as the 76ers can’t afford to come in under the minimum salary figure at the deadline and adding Stoudemire will help them in more than one way.
