The story also said Williams “has reportedly turned down a contract starting at $3.9 million from the Sixers.” But Cleveland, which is over the salary cap and must pay the luxury tax, would only have two ways with which to acquire Williams: 1) a sign-and-trade deal; 2) the league granting a $3.65 million exception once ex-Sixer Eric Snow’s injury retirement is granted (Snow is owed $7.3 million in 2008-09). But the second scenario is unlikely because it would mean less money for Williams than the Sixers apparently have offered.
Seems highly unlikely. But damn the Sixers offered him 3.9 mil? That's terrible. I know they have the leverage but don't be di
cks about it.
