2017 NBA Offseason Roster Counts

While NBA rosters are limited to 15 players during the regular season, teams are allowed to carry up to 20 players during the offseason. Expanded offseason rosters allow clubs to bring in players on contracts that aren’t fully guaranteed, giving those players a chance to earn a regular season roster spot or getting a closer look at them before sending them to their G League affiliate.

In addition to the usual 15-man rosters, NBA teams will be permitted to carry two players on two-way contracts. Two-way deals, which we describe in detail in our glossary, essentially give clubs the NBA rights to two extra players, though they’ll spend the majority of the season in the G League, rather than with the NBA team. While two-way players don’t count toward the regular season roster limit, they do count toward the 20-man offseason limit.

With deals for undrafted free agents occasionally reported and then not finalized for days, weeks, or even months, a team’s roster count can be tricky to track during the offseason, but we’ve done our best in the space below to present a picture of where each team’s roster stands. Here are the various categories you’ll find in our list:

  • Official: These players are officially under contract with a given team. The total number of players under contract is listed, with the number of players on fully guaranteed contracts noted in parentheses. So a team with 12 guaranteed contracts, one partially guaranteed contract, and two non-guaranteed deals will be listed as “15 (12).”
  • Reported: These are players whose contract agreements have been reported but haven’t been made official. We’re expecting them to be finalized at some point, though it’s possible that one or two of those deals will fall through or were reported erroneously.
  • RFA: These are restricted free agents who have outstanding qualifying offers but remain unsigned. We’re still assuming they’ll remain with their respective teams, though that could change.
  • Two-way: These are players signed to two-way contracts. Unless otherwise noted, these deals are official. You can find a specific team’s two-way players right here.
  • Total: A team’s total roster count, taking into account all of the above.

Here are 2017’s offseason NBA roster counts, which we’ll continue to update through the end of the preseason:

    So technically each team is allowed 17 contracts. The 15 man roster and 2 2way guys correct?

  2. There must be a typo for the Bucks. By my count, they have 15 guys on their roster, with 14 guaranteed contracts. Plus 2 two-ways for a total of 17.

      There was a typo on their number of guarantees (I’d accidentally put the number of non-guaranteed contracts instead of guaranteed contracts), but I do have their count at 16 (14 guarantees) + 2 two-ways. Gary Payton II and JeQuan Lewis are the two non-guaranteed guys.

    Unless I heard anything new I still think James Blackmon is an reported but not confirmed signing for the Sixers.

      There were a couple deals reported back in June that we didn’t include here since there was some ambiguity about whether they were just summer league agreements or actual camp invites, but yeah, Blackmon is one of them. Still possible he’ll sign with the Sixers.
