The deadline for rookie scale extensions and 2015/16 team option decisions isn’t until Friday, but in all other regards, the NBA offseason is over with the first regular season games set to tip off in a few hours. The Hoops Rumors 2014 Free Agent Tracker is a handy way to review much of the player movement that’s taken place over the last several months. Using our tracker, you can quickly browse the contract agreements from this summer, sorting by team, position, contract length, total salary, and a handful of other variables.
For instance, if you want to see all of the Heat’s offseason signings, you can sort by team and find all of the club’s free agent additions listed here. If you’re curious to see how many players signed contracts of four years or more, you can sort by contract length and bring up that list right here.
A few additional notes on the tracker:
- The years and dollar figures listed in the tracker are close to 100% accurate, based on the numbers that have been reported, but we’re still waiting on figures for a few late transactions, such as the deal Malcolm Thomas signed with the Sixers.
- Contract amounts aren’t necessarily fully guaranteed, and they’re based on what’s been reported.
- Separate entries exist for some players, like Chris Crawford and Christian Watford, since both of them were signed, waived, and then signed again by the same teams. However, only a single entry exists for Francisco Garcia, since the league never ratified his original contract.
- Training-camp invitees are included in the tracker. For our purposes, we’re counting only those who signed true summer contracts, which by definition contain no guaranteed money, and not those who received deals that involve any partially guaranteed salary. Summer contracts are marked with a † symbol in the tracker.
- The tracker doesn’t include signed draft picks, since those players weren’t free agents, but you can find the 2014 draftees who signed in this post. The tracker also doesn’t include “draft-and-stash” players who’ve signed this summer, but they’re listed here. A list of all the offseason trade acquisitions is right here.
Our Free Agent Tracker is designed to monitor offseason player movement, so it won’t be updated going forward — at least not until we unveil the 2015 version next summer. However, it will continue to stay active as a resource. If you have any corrections, please let us know right here.
