Timberwolves small forward Marcus Georges-Hunt received a $275K guarantee by staying on the roster through today, tweets Bobby Marks of ESPN. His next deadline is January 10, when his $1,312,611 — and all other NBA salaries — will become fully guaranteed.
Georges-Hunt was the only player without a guaranteed contract to win a spot on Minnesota’s roster, surviving the final cut on Saturday. He saw some time in the G League last season and may end up there again.
Georges-Hunt got into five games at the NBA level last year, all with the Magic. Undrafted out of Georgia Tech, he signed with the Celtics for training camp, but was waived before the season began. He got a 10-day contract with the Heat in February, but never appeared in a game, then signed with Orlando in early April.
