The Sixers are trying to buyout the contract of Jerryd Bayless so they can have enough money to offer LeBron James a max contract.
He is owed $9 million next season and the Sixers are not trying to pay him that much because it takes away from money they could offer James. Once they buy him out, there will be plenty of teams that need a veteran combo guard that will be looking to sign him. His fantasy value will be minimal unless he finds a team that provides him with a starting job for next season.
