Will Income Tax Guide Whether David Lee Lands In The Bay?

New, 2 comments

If the Lee for Randolph exchange depends on whether Lebron James signs elsewhere, is state income tax (in addition to playing with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh) going to matter to the Warriors free-agency chances?


ProBasketballTalk reports how Lebron’s max contract in Cleveland can end up costing him upwards of up to $5 million dollars in taxes per year, which he wouldn’t have to pay in Miami because Florida doesn’t have income tax (like a few other states).


For the Warriors sake, lets hope Lebron’s desire for cashflow, as much as rings, factors into his decision.
