Rookie Scale Team Option Tracker

The October 31st deadline for rookie scale extensions generates plenty of rumors this time of year, as a glance at the news on Klay Thompson, Kenneth Faried, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Knight and Jimmy Butler in our “Top Stories” on the right side of the site indicates. Still, that’s not the only piece of business NBA teams must address by Halloween. Clubs also have to decide whether to exercise or decline 2015/16 options for rookie-scale players heading into their second or third NBA seasons.

The players listed below are already on guaranteed contracts with their respective teams for the 2014/15 season, but they only have team options for 2015/16. These players’ clubs must decide by the end of the month whether to lock them up for ’15/’16 for the contract amount indicated in parentheses, or to let them become unrestricted free agents next summer. Many of these guys are locks to have their options picked up, but that’s not the case for all of them, as I examined in August.

That October 31st deadline is still a few weeks away, and many of the moves on these players won’t become official until much closer to that date, but we’ll be tracking every decision right here for the rest of the month. You can find our rookie contract 2015/16 option tracker anytime on the right sidebar under “Hoops Rumors Features.” Here’s the list to date, with updates to come as decisions are announced:
