2017/18 NBA Salary Guarantee Dates

While the majority of players on NBA rosters currently have fully guaranteed salaries for the 2017/18 season, there are many whose contracts are still non-guaranteed or only have a partial guarantee. We published a post last week dedicated to keeping tabs on those non-guaranteed players, sorting them by team.

By default, NBA contracts all become fully guaranteed on January 10 every year, meaning that a team must waive a non-guaranteed player by the end of the business day on January 7 to ensure he clears waivers before January 10. That way, his full-season salary won’t count against that team’s cap.

However, many players with non-guaranteed salaries have language in their contracts that ensures their guarantee deadline arrives early. We saw that over the summer, as many players with guarantee dates in June, July, or August were either waived in advance of those deadlines or had their 2017/18 salaries become guaranteed.

There are many more players with guarantee dates due in the coming weeks or months, so we’ll use the space below to track those deadlines and decisions. When a deadline date passes, we’ll note below if that player was waived. If he remained on the roster, receiving his guarantee, that’s noted with a ✔️ symbol.

We’re relying on salary information from Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders and Bobby Marks of ESPN, who each do an outstanding job of providing detailed contract info. However, there are a handful of discrepancies between the details they’ve provided, so we’ve noted those cases below — we’ll consider those details tentative for now.
