Recap Of Non-Guaranteed Contract Decisions

January 7 represents a key date for the NBA players who are on non-guaranteed contracts for the 2019/20 season. While their salaries won’t technically become guaranteed until January 10, the players who remained under contract through 5:00pm ET today are now assured of those guaranteed salaries. If released tomorrow, they wouldn’t clear waivers by the start of January 10, so they’ve survived the cut.

The following players will have their non-guaranteed 2019/20 salaries become fully guaranteed on Friday:

The following players were waived within the last few days before their salaries could become fully guaranteed. Their dead-money cap hits are noted:
