SIXERS WILL WRAP UP TYRESE MAXEY FOR 5 YEARS, $204 MILLION!

By Tommy Matthews

Tyrese Maxey is a restricted free agent, and of course the Sixers will wrap him up once free agency starts in nine days.

After just missing out an All-NBA team this season, Maxey didn’t qualify for the Rose Rule max that would have started at 30% of the 2024-25 salary cap instead of 25%.

That will make the Sixers’ decision on the 23-year-old pretty easy.

It’s hard to envision a scenario in which they don’t offer this season’s Most Improved Player a five-year, maximum-salary deal that will pay him a projected $204 million.

Maxey’s cap hold is only around $13MM, so Philadelphia will use up all its cap room before using his Bird rights to go over the cap to sign the ascendant guard to a deal starting at $35MM+.
