Major Report : Tyrese Haliburton Faces $40M Loss This Season

Published January 31, 2024 at 9:53 PM

Tyrese Haliburton criticizes the ''stupid'' 65-game requirement as he nears a potential $40 million loss, having already sat out 13 games this season.

Tyrese Haliburton disapproves of the NBA's new player participation policy, voicing his concerns after returning from a five-game absence. The rule, established in the collective bargaining agreement of April 2023, imposes a 65-game threshold for eligibility in awards like MVP and All-NBA honors, with players required to play a minimum of 20 minutes in each of those games.

The impact of this policy is evident in the MVP race, with Joel Embiid needing to avoid missing more than five games to remain eligible. Haliburton faces similar consequences, notably in his earnings, as his max contract extension is contingent on making an All-NBA team this season.

Having already missed 13 games, with an injury-affected 13-minute appearance not counting towards the 65-game threshold, Haliburton can only afford to miss three more games to qualify for All-NBA and potentially earn an additional $40 million over the life of his contract.
