When asked if there is concern to reach the NBA salary floor, Hinkie said: "At this point, that is not something that is a concern for us."

The Sixers are currently around $24 million, but that doesn't include any of the rookie salaries. Philadelphia Inquirer

Joel Embiid: Officially signed my NBA contract today... I'm BLESSED!!!! The American Dream "Coming to America" http://t.co/SYa5i4uAUc Twitter @JoelEmbiid

Salary cap expert Larry Coon, whose Q&A website offers a thorough explanation for the complicated collective bargaining agreement, says that if the Sixers can’t (and they probably won’t) spend another $32.6 million on players by the time the season ends, that money will be handed over to the the National Basketball Players Association for distribution.

Coon explains: The shortfall is based on the team salary as of the team’s last regular season game, but the distribution comes after the league’s audit in July The union informs the league of its proposed distribution within 30 days after the audit, and the team has 10 days after receiving the proposal to distribute the money. There is no set rule for how the money is distributed – the CBA just says “…pro rata or in accordance with such other formula as may be reasonably determined by the Players Association.” For The Win

Young, who makes $9.2 million, was likely to decline his $9.7 million player option next summer, making him an unrestricted free agent. This way, Hinkie gets something in return for Young.
