Then, I realized that out of 15 players that we have on contract (excluding Henry and Riller 2-way) Morey got 10 players here in just a little over a year. He was hired late October 2020.
Danny Green ($10M) - got in a trade and then resigned for a decent tradable contract
Seth Curry ($8,2M) - got in a trade, one of the best shooters in the league on a great contract
Furkan Forkmaz ($4,6M) - resigned for cheap to three years, one of the most underrated singings by Morey
Georges Niang ($3,3M) - singed this off-season, great bench player for just $6,75 over two years
Tyrese Maxey ($2,6M) - drafted by Morey, great potential
Andre Drummond ($2,4M) - singed this off-drain for minimum. Underrated move as well. Great backup for Embiid.
Jaden Springer ($2M) - drafted by Morey, to be determined.
Isaiah Joe ($1,5M) - great pick by Morey in the 2nd round last year, Joe definitely improved and can get much better and become rotational player
Paul Reed ($1,5M) - same as Joe
Charles Bassey ($1M) - drafted by Morey, to be determined
So, out of 15 players, 10 are here because of Morey.
Now, funny fact, this 10 players make a combine of little over $35M a year. Our total payroll is $142.
The rest 5 players are
Tobias Harris - $36M (I guess he’ll trade him if there is the good return for him, but putting him on the market right now makes no sense)
Ben Simmons - $33M (I’m quite sure he’ll trade him, he already tried once for Harden)
Joel Embiid - $31,5M (our franchise, he seems to have a good relationship with Morey, and got resigned by Morey)
Mattie Thybulle - $2,8M (maybe Morey will trade him with Simmons, like he already tried)
Shake Milton - $1,8M (Shake is on great contract, but if needed, I’m sure Morey will include him in Simmons or other deal, but value wise, Shake is in great contract)
I’m conclusion, I wanted to say, Morey is obviously building his team here, and value wise, salaries wise, I love it.
It’s feels so great to trust a GM.
And I trust him on Simmons trade and on decision on what to do with Tobias.
We have Morey now, we aren't getting fleeced anymore in any trade.
That's the good part of having him, we've seen other things
