Contract Details: Henderson, Biyombo, Kings

We’re nearly three weeks removed from the start of 2016’s free agent period, and more and more of the deals agreed to in the first half of July are now official. In some instances, the full details of those contract agreements weren’t reported initially, but Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders continue to fill in those details for the Basketball Insiders’ salary database. Here are a few noteworthy updates, courtesy of Pincus:

  • Gerald Henderson‘s two-year, $18MM contract with the Sixers is non-guaranteed for the second season. If Philadelphia waives Henderson by June 30, 2017, it will essentially just be a one-year, $9MM deal and the team won’t be on the hook for any second-year salary.
  • Bismack Biyombo‘s four-year, $72MM contract with the Magic actually has annual $17MM cap hits, rather than $18MM. Biyombo’s pact features $1MM in annual unlikely incentives.
  • The Magic signed second-round pick Stephen Zimmerman using cap room, which means the team was able to lock him up to a three-year deal. The first year is guaranteed for $950K, while the next two years are currently non-guaranteed.
  • Two of the veteran free agents signed by the Kings will have small partial guarantees on the second year of their two-year contracts. Anthony Tolliver makes $8MM in each of his two seasons, while Arron Afflalo gets $12.5MM annually, but Tolliver only has $2MM guaranteed for his second year, while Afflalo has just a $1.5MM guarantee in year two.

Great contract for Philly with Henderson. I could see him playing out the deal in Philly, but he could also be a trade chip next summer. I feel like this is a good way to take advantage of surge in cap, pay more $$$ in 1st year of deal, 2nd year non-guaranteed
