Basically the Thunder just paid $100k to land a $1.25 mil trade exception for a full year

Eric Pincus

The Oklahoma City Thunder sent the Philadelphia 76ers $100,000 in the Thabeet trade - could have just cut him outright - wanted that TPE

Thunder trade Hasheem Thabeet to 76ers to help avoid luxury tax, Sixers expected to waive former No. 2 pick cbsprt.co/1q35Aj9

Kevin Pelton

As for the Thunder-Sixers deal, give both sides a C+. OKC's options with trade exception limited since it's so small. PHI gets cash.

Eric Pincus

Thunder dealt Hasheem Thabeet officially to Sixers for cash, gettting a trade x for $1.25 mil -- OKC also gets protected 2nd @Marc Stein

Marc Stein

Thunder now nearly $2.7 million below next season's luxury tax line with 14 players under contract after dealing Hasheem Thabeet to Philly

Anthony Slater

Trade of Hasheem Thabeet doesn't necessarily mean Thunder is going to add someone. OKC likes roster flexibility. Currently at 14.

OKC also receives a highly protected second round pick in the deal, though it is unlikely to ever make it to the Thunder.

Royce Young

The Thunder are just getting a $1.2 million traded player exception in the deal, I'm told. Sixers are under the cap.

Anthony Slater

The Thunder has traded center Hasheem Thabeet to Philadelphia for a $1.25 million trade exception.

Marc Stein

Thunder, I'm told, will send cash considerations to Sixers so Philly will absorb Thabeet's contract. OKC thus creates $1.25 million TPE

Royce Young

Mildly interesting: In the Thunder's Mark Daigneault release, they only referred to the 66ers as its "D-League team." Name change coming?

Payal Doshi

It’s only fitting my Friday evening involves #FBF to the @raptors vs @Oklahoma City Thunder on @NBATVCanada. #NBAWithdrawl
