Midseason Signees On Multiyear Contracts

The Pistons are reportedly set to make Quincy Miller one of more than a dozen players who’ve signed contracts since the start of the season that last beyond season’s end. Agent Jared Karnes secured a partial guarantee on next year’s salary for Miller, but many who travel his path are not so lucky. Quite often, multiyear deals favor teams, because they afford them the chance to keep the player into the offseason without any guarantee that they’ll pay him beyond the first season of the contract. It’s the case for the majority of the players who signed multiyear deals after the start of this season.

That made it easy for the teams who’ve parted with midseason signees on multiyear deals even before year one reached its conclusion. The Sixers made this maneuver four times this year, in part because GM Sam Hinkie employs a strategy of signing marginal players to long-term deals using the team’s cap space to secure their rights, even if there’s little chance those contracts will run to term. Even teams without cap space can use the minimum-salary exception to sign players to two-year deals, and that’s been a boon for the Heat, who tacked an extra year at the minimum salary onto Hassan Whiteside‘s deal.

Here’s a look at each midseason signee who’s on a multiyear deal:

  • Quincy Miller, Pistons — His two-year deal is partially guaranteed for next season.
  • JaMychal Green, Grizzlies — His three-year deal worth nearly $1.96MM is partially guaranteed for $150K next season and non-guaranteed for the third season. The third year becomes partially guaranteed for $200K if he remains under contract through July 11th, 2016, and that partial guarantee escalates to a full guarantee if he remains under contract through New Year’s Day, 2017.
  • Reggie Williams, Spurs — His two-year minimum-salary deal is non-guaranteed for next season.
  • Lorenzo Brown, Timberwolves — His two-year minimum-salary deal is non-guaranteed for next season.
  • Hassan Whiteside, Heat — His two-year minimum-salary deal is non-guaranteed for next season.
  • James McAdoo, Warriors — His two-year minimum-salary deal is partially guaranteed for $100K next season.
  • Joffrey Lauvergne, Nuggets — His three-year deal worth nearly $5.21MM is fully guaranteed for next season and non-guaranteed for the third year.
  • Tyler Johnson, Heat — His two-year minimum-salary deal is non-guaranteed for next season, unless he remains under contract through August 1st, in which case the salary will be 50% guaranteed.
  • Langston Galloway, Knicks — His two-year minimum-salary deal is non-guaranteed for next season, unless he remains under contract through July 1st, in which case the salary will be partially guaranteed for $220K. That partial guarantee jumps to $440K if he remains under contract through September 15th.
  • Elijah Millsap, Jazz — His three-year deal worth more than $2.067MM is non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Furkan Aldemir, Sixers — His four-year deal worth nearly $11.421MM is non-guaranteed beyond next season. The third year becomes partially guaranteed for $1.4MM if he remains under contract through August 5th, and the same is true of the fourth year.
  • Darius Morris, Nets — His two-year minimum salary deal is non-guaranteed for next season, unless he remains under contract through July 1st, in which case the salary will be partially guaranteed for $25K.
  • Robert Covington, Sixers — His four-year deal worth more than $4.103MM is non-guaranteed beyond this season. The final year is also a team option.

The following players signed multiyear deals during the season, but they’ve already been waived:

  • Malcolm Thomas, Sixers — His four-year deal for about $4.1MM was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Ronald Roberts Jr., Sixers — His four-year deal for about $3.3MM was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Patrick Christopher, Jazz — His two-year, minimum salary deal was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Malcolm Lee, Sixers — His four-year deal for about $4MM was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Gal Mekel, Pelicans — His two-year, minimum salary deal was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Drew Gordon, Sixers — His four-year deal for about $3.3MM was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
  • Will Cherry, Cavaliers — His two-year, minimum salary deal was non-guaranteed beyond this season.
