2019/20 Non-Guaranteed Contracts By NBA 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 consider their contracts. Players with guaranteed salaries for 2019/20 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, as well as our own data. 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. Some players on this list have partial guarantees, which we’ve also mentioned below.

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, 2020. That’s the day that all players still under contract will have their salaries fully guaranteed for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

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. You can use our roster counts page to find those players whose deals have been reported but not finalized.

Without further ado, here’s the full list of players without fully guaranteed salaries for 2019/20, broken down by team:

  1. Is there any way a hard-capped team, like the Warriors who are so close to the line, can bring in players for training camp, besides someone who will play for free, I guess.

      They can sign Exhibit 10 contracts — those don’t count against the cap unless they’re kept on the roster to start the regular season.
