Teams were allowed to start signing players to 10-day contracts last week, and so far, a trio of deals have taken place. Elliot Williams signed a 10-day deal with the Grizzlies, Lorenzo Brown inked 10-day pact with the Grizzlies and Sean Kilpatrick secured a brief stay with the Nuggets. Other teams are investigating the possibility of adding someone on a 10-day, and after four dozen players signed 10-day contracts last season, more moves are almost certainly on the way.
The bulk of the signings that take place in the NBA between now and April will be of the 10-day variety, and we’ll keep 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. Just be sure to write a player’s last name first if searching in that field. 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 that former lottery pick and current D-League standout Earl Clark 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 that the Cavs, who just opened a roster spot, 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.
