"The best thing you could say about Charlie Ward is at least he wasn't Chris Childs." - Bill Walton

 

2012 offseason free agent movement




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 has just completed fourth year of first round rookie contract and, assuming his team extends the necessary qualifying offer, is to enter restricted free agency. Or, player has three years or less experience in the NBA and, assuming his team extends the necessary qualifying offer, is to enter restricted free agency. But they might not choose to do so. The only exception to those eligible are those on first round rookie contracts who had an option declined, like James Anderson.

Unguaranteed/partially guaranteed: .....guess. Details listed.
