The 10-7 Sixers don’t play until tomorrow night against the Magic at the Wells, so let’s see who their worst contract is:
Hands down, it’s Jerryd Bayless: three years, $27 million
There’s no question about Bayless is a productive player when he’s healthy enough to see action.
The thing is, it’s been a while since the Arizona product hasn’t been consistently plagued by injury. Between 2015-16 and 2016-17, Bayless suited up in merely 55 out of a potential 164 games. And he’s already missed time in 2017-18 with a wrist ailment.
Already 29 years old and owed another $17.5 million, if it came down to it, it wouldn’t be easy for the Sixers to move on from their veteran combo guard.
