    76ers announce 20% pay cut to front office / coaches, Embiid donates $500k

    Comfrims season is canceled?

    Only at-will employees -- over $50K a year in salary -- are required to accept the Sixers salary reductions. Those under contract are needed to "volunteer" to do it. https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1...09237471232**

    For Joel Embiid, the $500,000 donation will go toward health and medical relief. The amount toward 76ers employees is to be determined based upon who is affected. https://twitter.com/ShamsCharania/st...57616990209**

    For the record... 76ers owners is worth 3.4 billion.

    Why is Philly always the scum lords of the NBA?

    Yeah once the NBA closed the facilities due to shelter in place. It does not look good. Some teams are ready to move on to draft.

    We're trying to monitor and make sure they do the most they can with what they have," Jones told ESPN. "The tough part is what you don't know. You don't know how long the runway is going to be before you're at full speed. A process that took 10 weeks [at the end of the offseason to ramp up to the regular season] might be compressed into 10 days.

    "Getting their bodies conditioned to play again, we're going to need some time. Nothing mimics NBA basketball except NBA basketball. Everybody's going to lose that conditioning."
