    Philadelphia 76ers sign J.J. Redick to a one-year, $23 million contract
    Grade: A
    This is a perfect deal for Philadelphia. With $50 million or so in cap space to spend, the Sixers had to do something. And by getting Redick, they acquire a veteran presence for the locker room and add another shooter to put around Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Redick was never going back to the Los Angeles Clippers, and while he had interest from several teams, Philadelphia was always seen as a front-runner. Now Philadelphia can use a chunk of its remaining space to potentially give Robert Covington a raise as part of a renegotiation and extension of his contract.

      The reason for these insane contracts is simple; NBA owners want guaranteed income and are not willing to compete against each other in any meaningful way. All of the salary cap rules and the draft are designed to shield owners from financial risk as much as possible. It also artificially inflates the value of teams in small markets or teams which are not well-run, further entrenching the current pseudo-competitive system. I understand that anti-trust exemption parity is the status quo in American sports but hopefully one day one of the the big sports leagues will abandon this model and move towards a truly competitive league. The NBA as the most player-centric league among the big four could and should lead way but as long as players are willing to have there salaries determined by a slew of arbitrary, anti-competitive salary cap rules, the owners and the league beauracracy have no incentive to change.

    I feel like whenever czabe has said he intends to write more like: “My goal, is to write something in the range of 500-1000 words every day. Perhaps even weekends.” …. he writes LESS…. 🙂
