Even with Kanter opting in, the Knicks should still be able to sign free agents this summer with a projected $8.6 million non-tax midlevel exception and a $3.4 million biannual exception.

The 76ers wouldn’t sign George to be the face of their franchise. They already have an All-Star in Joel Embiid and a future All-Star in Ben Simmons, both of whom are under the age of 25. Instead, they’d sign George with the belief that he can take them from playoff contention to title contention.

And there are financial realities. As one source told Sporting News, There’s a limit on how much they’re going to be willing to pay for a team, no matter how good the roster is. There’s a limit on everybody. And eventually, the bill will come due on the players they have.

Celtics owners have said they’d be willing to pay the luxury tax, but that bill figures to get large — quickly. Yes, the Celtics have a rich deal with their local broadcaster, but they do not own the TD Garden — it’s owned by the Bruins — and that will always put something of a cap on revenues.

If the Celtics were to trade for Leonard, then give new contracts to both him and Irving (who can also be a free agent) next summer, they would find themselves deep into the luxury tax. An Womens Yu Darvish Jersey estimate of their tax bill for 2019-20 would run well over $100 million, maybe even more than $150 million. The Celtics are a valuable franchise, but that type of annual tax bill would be too much for any team without full revenues on the building in which they Harry Carson Youth Jersey play.
