Golden State, of course, needed some help on the wing after Thompson suffered a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the 2020-21 NBA campaign.
Golden State tax bill is currently $66M— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) November 19, 2020
The addition of Kelly Oubre would see it increase to $134M
$14.4M of Oubre + $68M in taxes= $82.4M
Oubre, who averaged 18.7 points with the Suns last season, is in the final year of a two-year, $30 million contract. He'll make $14.38 million this season.
