Sixers contract value: Slightly overpaid

George Hill ($4.4 million overpaid)

George Hill has dealt with injuries, playing with a tanking OKC team, and being traded, so his performance this season is not representative of his true value. Hill is making $9.6 million this season but has played at a $5.2 million level so far. Ultimately, for veterans like Hill, his true value should be measured in the playoffs. If Hill contributes at a high level off the bench, he will certainly be worth his salary and the second-rounders the Sixers gave up.

Gary Clark ($1.6 million overpaid)

Gary Clark was picked up near the end of the season and has played very little for the Sixers. Clark and his $2 million salary are mostly dead money at this point, and he most likely does not fit into the Sixers’ long-term plans.

Mike Scott ($1.3 million overpaid)

Mike Scott had a rough start to the season and was nearly out of the rotation but has filled in as injuries and the health and safety protocols hit the team. Scott makes $5 million this season and has been worth even less than that. The 10-year NBA vet may get another contract in the NBA, but at this point is not much more than a minimum player.
