Players Whose Contracts Became Guaranteed

January 8 2013 at 4:59pm CST By Luke Adams

For players on non-guaranteed contracts, yesterday represented one of the most important dates on the NBA calendar. Since contracts become guaranteed for the season on Thursday, teams were required to waive non-guaranteed players on Monday, allowing them to clear waivers on Wednesday, to avoid committing to rest-of-season salaries.

While many players were released, those players who survived the cut will now receive full-season salaries for 2012/13. Their teams can, of course, still choose to waive them, but the clubs would be on the hook for the players' full salaries.

Here are the players whose contracts will officially become guaranteed on Thursday, along with their respective teams and their '12/13 salaries:

Kyle Korver (Hawks, $5,000,000)
Daniel Gibson (Cavaliers, $4,792,332)
