The 10-day contract isn’t just the domain of the fringe prospect. It’s a path that several notable names take to re-establish their NBA careers. This season, players who were once taken with the first overall pick (Kenyon Martin), the second overall pick (Michael Beasley) and the fourth overall pick (Tyrus Thomas) have all signed 10-day contracts.
The bulk of the signings that take place this time of year are usually of the 10-day variety, and we’re keeping on top of all of them. Hoops Rumors has created a database that allows you to track every 10-day signing all season long. The 10-Day Contract Tracker includes information on all 10-day contracts signed from the 2006/07 season on, giving you a chance to identify trends regarding your favorite teams and players. The search filters in the database make it easy to sort by team, player and year. You can even see whether a player and team signed a second 10-day contract, and if the short-term deals led to an agreement that covered the rest of the season.
For instance, if you want to see how many 10-day deals Lou Amundson has signed over the course of his career, you can find that information here. Similarly, if you want to see all the 10-day contracts the Mavericks have signed in recent years, you can do so here.
A link to our 10-Day Contract Tracker can be found at any time in the Tools menu at the top of the page, or in the right sidebar under “Hoops Rumors Features.” We’ll be keeping it up to date for the rest of the season, so be sure to check back to keep tabs on the latest signings as they become official.
