   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Bobby Simmons - Simmons began the year with the Spurs, and helped them on the way to their current 70 win pace with 16 scoreless minutes. He was then waived as the Spurs began an early season end-of-the-bench carousel that saw them eventually settle on Chris Quinn and Ime Udoka. Simmons didn't appear to have anything left, nor did he appear to have anything left last year with the Nets. He's only 30, but he's lost a lot since he was 25.

   The best of what's left

Bobby Simmons - Simmons's career transition from "can do anything except shoot" to "can do nothing but shoot" is complete. Simmons put up only one season with a PER over 13.8 in his career, missed the whole 2006/07 season with injury, and played only 23 games last season as well. The contract Milwaukee gave him looks even worse than ever, and as it's finally expired, Simmons is now in grave danger of falling out of the league altogether.

   Current Trade Kickers

[...] You only get one trade kicker per contract; that is to say, if you sign a contract with a trade kicker in it, the trade kicker is only applied to the first trade that contract is in and not to any subsequent contracts. (The exception is with sign and trades, where the first trade - the sign and trade - is ignored, and the trade kicker is applied to the next subsequent trade. This is why Peja is listed above.)

Because of that, there are a good many players whose current contracts featured trade kickers that have already been invoked. Here they are now, along with the value of their kicker. Note: only currently-being-paid contracts are listed, and the player doesn't necessarily have to be on an NBA roster any more.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
