"It's just the same as school, just without all the adult supervision and everyone needing to know where I'm going every five minutes." - Dorell Wright about the NBA

 

2012 offseason free agents by position



Glossary of terms:

Team option: Team has the option to extend the contract to already dictated terms.

Player option/early termination option: Player has the option to extend the contract to already dictated terms. They're basically the same thing, even though they aren't. The differences are not relevant to the context of this page.

Restricted: Player can be made into a restricted free agent by the team, regardless.of whether they want to be one or not, if they extend them a qualifying offer. If QO is not offered, the player is instead an unrestricted free agent.

Unguaranteed/partially guaranteed: .....guess. Guess wildly. Financial details of such contracts to be found on salary pages.

Lists accurate as of May 26th 2012. Players loosely sorted by order of ability, but only very loosely. Thought has not gone into the exact placements.

Also note: Just because the people with options are on this list, it doesn't mean they actually WILL become free agents. They just can. Some certainly will, some certainly won't. Use your own sense on that. It'll be known at the time, and not before then.
