Could All-NBA Embiid cost Philly? That and more bonuses to watch

Who is on track for an incentive bonus this season? Bill Streicher/USA TODAY

What started as 34 players with incentive bonuses in their contract in early September has now increased to 39 with the late September signings of Nikola Mirotic, JaMychal Green and rookie extensions of Joel Embiid, TJ Warren and Gary Harris.

While there are five months for teams to improve upon their early-season record, the first six weeks of the season have begun to separate which players are trending toward likely and unlikely bonuses (and which have been eliminated because of injury).

Once again, the media will have an impact with All-Star and postseason honors, votes that could change the landscape financially for some players and potentially even decrease cap space in July for one team.
