Adam Silver provides an update on the 76ers tampering investigation of PJ Tucker, James Harden
The Philadelphia 76ers caught the attention of the NBA after making some very quick moves at the start of the free agency period back on June 30th.
Quick Recap: Roughly five minutes into free agency, it was announced that the Sixers would be signing PJ Tucker to a 3-year contract.
From there, the NBA decided that something was “fishy” and decided to launch a full investigation into not only the PJ Tucker signing, but also the fact that James Harden re-signed and took a massive pay cut making it possible for the 76ers organization to have financial flexibility too sign both Tucker and Danuel House Jr.
NBA commissioner and leader of the Deep State, Adam Silver spoke yesterday at the Board of Governors press conference and provided an update on the investigation into the 76ers.

The statuses of those investigations are ongoing. Hopefully they’ll be wrapped up in the next few weeks. I think what prompted them was sort of just the tick-tock chronology around sort of when signings are permissible and the announcements of those signings and the information that came out about them, which was cause for the league office to investigate.
The update was pretty generic and there was really nothing newsworthy, but he did add that there was no complaint from a team to the league about the signing of Tucker.
Training camp opens on September 27th so hopefully we can wrap all this nonsense up before then. We all know nothing is going to happen so let’s just close the door on the investigation and move on.
