USA TODAY Sports

It’s not exactly the most warming of stories in this economy – one millionaire will still be paid even after a season-long sick day, while another group of millionaires will be able to save money – but it is interesting to note that the Philadelphia 76ers will not be on the hook for Andrew Bynum’s salary should he sit out the entire season. Bynum, who was dealt to the Sixers last August and has missed the entire season with a right knee injury, will still get every penny of his $16.9 million salary even if he doesn’t play a minute this year, and the Sixers are off the hook for that compensation due to the insurance they have on their investment.
