After initially announcing plans for salary reductions for full-time, salaried staff, the Sixers changed course a few hours later on Tuesday and have decided to pay all employees their full salary while the NBA is on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Josh Harris, the Sixers' managing partner, released the following statement just hours after announcing that the organization would be cutting full-time employee's salaries. "After listening to our staff and players, it's clear that was the wrong decision," Harris said. "We have reversed it and will be paying these employees their full salaries... To our staff and fans, I apologize for getting this wrong." The NBA is on hiatus until at least June and it remains to be seen when they'll actually get back on the court. But at least Sixers employees will be able to hopefully stay afloat for as long as the stoppage in play lasts. Mar 25 12:03 am (EST)
