‘King’ James, Last Dance with his son Bronny

In 2022, James Harden signed a two-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers without exercising his player opt-out right for the 2022-2023 season.
If Harden had opted out at the time, he could have received $47.5 million.

What’s interesting is that in Harden’s new two-year contract, his annual salary drops to $33 million.
Harden himself reduced his salary.

Philadelphia, which had room in its salary cap (a limit on the team’s total annual salary), recruited PJ Tucker and Daniel House Jr. in the free agent market.
Although the details are somewhat different, LeBron James is also known to be willing to take a pay cut like Harden.

According to ESPN, James’ agent Rich Paul revealed that the Lakers are willing to take a pay cut to bring in a veteran player like Harden.
James reportedly will not exercise his $51.4 million player option rights for next season and will sign a three-year, $162 million contract with the Lakers.

“James can take a $12.9 million pay cut by working with the Lakers,” Paul told ESPN.
The reason why James is so strict about taking a pay cut can be interpreted as his strong will to retire after winning again with the Lakers.

This includes the hope of lifting the trophy together with his son Bronny.
Broney was selected by the Lakers with the 55th overall pick in the All-Rookie Draft.

Attention is being paid to whether James, who set a new record by becoming the first player in the NBA to play on the same team as his son, will be able to dance the ‘Last Dance’ with his son.
