Contract Guarantee Recap

Thursday was the final day for NBA teams to waive players who had any non-guaranteed salary without it becoming guaranteed, and few took advantage of the opportunity to retain flexibility. Only six players hit waivers this week, meaning dozens of others have their full-season salaries locked in.

Below is a team-by-team look at what each team did with contracts that included non-guaranteed salary entering this week. Note that the salaries listed are the amount the team pays. Some of those players are veterans of more than two seasons who are on minimum-salary contracts that are partially funded by the league, so they earn more than the figure listed. Also, note that not all the salary that was partially guaranteed is listed. That’s because most of the players with partial guarantees had already earned more than those amounts by virtue of sticking on their respective rosters as long as they had.
