Rookie Scale Contracts That Didn’t Run To Term

The fate of Tony Wroten‘s rookie scale contract hangs in the balance today and Saturday, the two days that NBA teams have to consider claiming that deal off waivers from the Sixers, who released him Thursday. Any team that submits a claim by 4:00pm Central time Saturday would be responsible for his $2,179,353 salary, but that team would have the ability to match competing bids for him in restricted free agency this summer. Few midseason signees warrant more than the minimum salary, so if Wroten clears waivers, he’s liable to come more cheaply. However, if he only signs for the rest of the season, he’d be set for unrestricted free agency, not restricted free agency.

In any case, Wroten, the 25th overall pick from 2012, would become the 11th first-round pick from that year whose rookie scale contract didn’t run to term if he clears waivers. Here’s a look at the others, a group that includes three lottery picks:

The other 2012 first-rounders are either in the final seasons of their rookie scale contracts or signed extensions this past offseason.
