NBA Team Option Decisions For 2019/20

Having already created a space to track this offseason’s player option decisions, we’re turning our attention today to team options. Over the next couple months, we’ll use the space below to keep tabs on all the team options for 2019/20, making note of whether they’re picked up or declined.

True team options are somewhat rare in the NBA, since clubs have typically preferred to include a non-guaranteed year or two in player contracts. Non-guaranteed salaries are less restrictive and provide a little more flexibility than team options, which clubs must act upon by a specific date (June 29) each year.

The list below also doesn’t include rookie scale team options for 2019/20, since those third- and fourth-year options function differently than team options on standard veteran contracts. Those ’19/20 rookie scale team option decisions were made during the 2018 offseason, and can be found here.

The standard team options for 2019/20 are listed below. We’ll keep this list updated through the end of June to note the latest decisions.

      Trier is there. I mistakenly had Jenkins down on my list as a non-guaranteed salary. Will update to add him, thanks.

    Nuggets should decline that milsap option. Can find someone cheaper or better.

    • Jason Lancaster

      I bet they decline and re-sign. It’s not a coincidence that Denver’s defense improved with Millsap on the floor most of the season. The guy has at least a couple more good seasons in him.

  2. Trier’s option salary would be at around 1.6 mm (second year minimum) if the Knicks’ FO knew how (and when) to negotiate contracts. Assuming their fantasy proves true (Durant and KI sign up), the difference likely means losing 2 other low cap hold players they’ve invested some time in (e.g., Kornet).

    List is missing JeMerrio Jones (LAL). Also I have Billy Garrett down as a RFA with no team option this summer.

      Jones’ 2019/20 is a non-guaranteed salary rather than a team option, per Eric Pincus and Bobby Marks. Garrett signed a multiyear contract, per RealGM’s transactions log, and Pincus has next season as a team option for him.
