NBA: Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Grandma Helen’s Attic is a constantly updated fanpost containing Sixers and NBA links from around the web, brought to you by Liberty Ballers community member Grandma Helen.

You can check out edition #124 here.

Grandma Helen’s Attic is a collection of basketball related links, video’s, article excerpts, commentary, interesting tweets, breaking news and the occasional off topic post of funny or topical material (I’ll do my best to stay away from politics).

As long as each edition of this ongoing series gets enough RECS to earn it’s stellar reputation as the Babe Ruth of Fanposts, I will continue to produce new editions. The purpose of monitoring RECs is to gauge continuing interest.

You can REC this Fanpost by logging onto Liberty Ballers and clicking on the green tab just below this Attic Edition header. The tab says REC.

Note: The Attic is highly addictive, shockingly informative, and a joy to read! It’s worth every penny you pay for it.

Highlight from The Attic

Grandma’s thoughts on the Sixers’ financial situation:

The 76ers FO will prioritize staying under the lux. tax line because this will delay future repeater taxes for another year ( we are talking serious savings). Barring a deal that’s too good to turn down, the 76ers will treat the lux. tax line as a hard cap. Assuming Trey is on the roster beyond Jan. 10th, the 76ers are $4,232,634 under the lux, tax line.

If the 76ers make a trade, they will be very conscious of limiting taking on salary. If they enter the buyout market, there will also be a hit although it will be scaled to how much season is left.

The point is the FO is not going to cavalierly go into lux. tax territory and this could start to limit their moves, particularly if they get any closer to paying taxes.
