   Why NBA Teams Sign Players They Don’t Want

The vast majority of players signed for training camp are signed to contracts without any guaranteed compensation on them.

This, certainly, is no surprise, as it has long been known that most players signed for training camp are not expected to make the team. A few players have fairly nominal guaranteed portions – for example, Dee Bost received $50,000 from Portland, Dewayne Dedmon $25,000 from Golden State, and Trent Lockett $35,000 from Sacramento. Most, however, do not. Teams are not involved in bidding wars for the Trey McKinney-Jones and Carlos Morais types, and thus there is no incentive to give any guaranteed money away.

   Unsigned guards looking to make mid-season NBA impact

Dee Bost - Bost went to camp with the Blazers on a small guarantee, but was cut and joined the Idaho Stampede of the D-League, for whom he is averaging 17.4 points, 9.0 assists (second in the league) and 2.4 steals per game (5th). Forming a dynamic backcourt with Pelicans draft pick Pierre Jackson, Bost's blazing speed and constant attack makes for a player constantly putting the opposition under pressure, and although he is small, inefficient, a poor shooter and prone to mistakes, he could make it in the NBA in the same way that Ishmael Smith has.

   2014 Summer League rosters - Indiana

Dee Bost - Waived by the Blazers out of last year's training camp, Bost went to the D-League to form an insanely dynamic back court with Pierre Jackson. He averaged 15.2 points, 8.4 assists and 2.1 steals in 40 minutes per game of all 50 contests, and did the majority of the ball handling that allowed Jackson to do what he did best. Bost has many faults - he is still a poor shooter, still acts like he isn't, is still a bit ineffective in the lane however well he can get there, is still sporadic defensively, and still gets very careless. But when he's on, he is incredibly dynamic, fast, impossible to stop in transition and a real nuisance. He's the opposite of Atkins, actually.
