James Harden will reportedly sign a 1+1 contract (one year guaranteed, player option for the second season) that will include a $15 million paycut for the 2022-23 season, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

A $15 million paycut off of the $47.4 million player option he declined would put him at $32.4 million for this season. With max (8%) yearly raises that would put his player option for 2023-24 at just under $35 million. I've updated my salary cap sheet with these estimates. I'll update it once again when we have the exact details.

A quick overview of the short, and long, term implications of the contract.
