Wojnarowski says one of the “central elements” of the investigation will be into Harden’s contract after he decided to decline a $47.4 million player option before agreeing to take a pay cut in the form of a two-year, $68 million contract.

The investigation is reportedly already underway with Sixers president Daryl Morey already receiving calls from league attorneys. The NBA has recently enfored stricter penalties for tampering, with the Bulls and Heat each being stripped of second-round picks after it was determined they had contact with Lonzo Ball and Kyle Lowry, respectively, before the allowed date.
