2013/14 NBA Team And Player Options

Our list of 2013/14 free agents includes players that have options or non-guaranteed contracts for next season. However, mixed in with all the rest of the free agents, it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of which players may continue playing on their current contracts. So we'll use this space to round up all the players who have a player option, an early termination option, or a team option for 2013/14.

The decision to exercise a team option can only be made by the club, while a player option can only be exercised by the player. An early termination option is a type of player option that can only be included in contracts of five years or more. If an option is picked up, the player will remain under contract for at least the 2013/14 season, while turning down an option means the player is eligible to become a free agent next July.

Listed below are the player, early termination, and team options for the 2013/14 season, along with each player's team and the amount of the option.
