2017/18 NBA Non-Guaranteed Contracts By Team

As the NBA regular season approaches and teams reduce their rosters from the 20-player offseason limit to the 15-man regular season max, the best way to determine which players will survive preseason cuts is to assess their contracts. Players with guaranteed salaries for 2017/18 are far more likely to earn spots on 15-man rosters than players whose contracts aren’t fully guaranteed.

Keeping that in mind, we’re using the space below to keep tabs on the players on each NBA team who don’t have fully guaranteed contracts, using information from Basketball Insiders and ESPN. The players listed here have non-guaranteed salaries, partially guaranteed salaries, or Exhibit 9 or Exhibit 10 contracts, which essentially function like non-guaranteed deals. Unless otherwise noted, these players are on minimum salary contracts.

Not all of these players will be waived before the regular season begins, so we’ll maintain this list for the next several months, up until January 10, 2018. That’s the day that all players under contract have their salaries fully guaranteed for the rest of the 2017/18 season.

Some players on this list currently have partial guarantees or will have their salaries become guaranteed prior to January 10. We’ve noted those partial guarantees in parentheses, and our list of early salary guarantee dates can be found right here.

Only players who have formally signed contracts are listed below, so if a player has reportedly reached an agreement with a team on a non-guaranteed deal, we’ll add him to our list when that deal becomes official. For now, you can use our roster counts page to find those players whose deals have been reported but not finalized.

Our roster counts page also notes how many guaranteed salaries each team has on its books, which will provide an idea of which players listed below might have a better chance to earn a roster spot — a non-guaranteed player on a roster with 12 guaranteed salaries has better odds to make his team’s 15-man squad than a non-guaranteed player on a roster with 15 guaranteed salaries.

Without further ado, here’s the full list of players without fully guaranteed salaries for 2017/18, broken down by team:

    I’m not 100% sure but I think Johnny O’Bryant is on a non-guaranteed contract for Charlotte. I might be wrong.

    • Luke Adams

      According to a few reports, his salary for the season became guaranteed on August 1.

        Oh ok. That must be what I was thinking of. Thanks Luke
