The flurry of signings and roster moves in July left us scrambling to figure out exactly how many options years or non-guaranteed seasons were included on each new contract signed this summer. Now that the dust has settled and the terms of most contracts have been reported, we have a clearer idea of what the free agent picture will look like in future offseasons.
Our list of free agents for the summer of 2014 will be published later this week, but before we get to that, we've made sure we're up to date on next summer's free agents. Using our list of 2013/14 free agents, you can see not only which players are certainly headed for free agency a year from now, but also the players whose options or non-guaranteed contracts mean they could become free agents as well.
Many players with options years or non-guaranteed deals almost certainly won't hit the free agent market next summer. For instance, Kyle Lowry's contract for 2013/14 is mostly non-guaranteed, so you'll find his name on our list, but barring a catastrophic turn of events, the Raptors will certainly be guaranteeing his deal eventually. As those decisions are made official, we'll continue to update our list, which can be found anytime on the right sidebar under "Hoops Rumors Features."
Additionally, a handful of players with non-guaranteed deals for 2013/14 are also on non- or partially-guaranteed contracts for 2012/13. Those players won't find a spot on our '13/'14 list until their status for the coming season is officially determined, so they can be found on this list in the meantime.
