"I thought so. Or I was just jumping up and down because I'm retarded." - Sam Mitchell, after he believed a last-second shot (later discounted) had been good.

   Creative Financing in the NBA, 2010
2010-08-12

After the Jones buyout came their renouncements. With the team option on Mario Chalmers exercised, the team promptly renounced everyone other than Dwyane Wade [sic] and Joel Anthony. This meant that 10 free agents from the previous season were renounced; Jermaine O'Neal, Quentin Richardson, Udonis Haslem, Dorell Wright, Yakhouba Diawara, Rafer Alston, Carlos Arroyo, Jamaal Magloire, Shavlik Randolph and Kenny Hasbrouck. Some free agents from previous seasons were also still clogging up cap space; namely, Alonzo Mourning, Steve Smith, John Wallace, Wang Zhi Zhi, Gary Payton, Bimbo Coles, Christian Laettner, and Shandon Anderson. In total, before these renouncements took place, Miami's free agent cap holds amounted to a total of $88,184,132, $24,166,800 alone was for Jermaine O'Neal.

   Chicago's Last Resort Offseason Plan That Still Manages To Avoid Signing Joe Johnson
2010-06-14

[...] That leaves a market with few shooters on it. And those that are good shooters are either unsuitable or unavailable. Mike Miller's days of being able to defend opposing guards are pretty much over. Kyle Korver can't really do it either. I wouldn't want Quentin Richardson to attempt it. Anthony Morrow is desirable, but is not easy to get. J.J. Redick is also desirable, but he's restricted, and owned by a team who has spent extremely generously in the last two years. Roger Mason is OK, but he's no starter. And then there's Ray Allen, who, while an absolutely perfect fit for Chicago's roster, is setting records for Boston in the NBA Finals. He should be considered unavailable until further notice.

   Current Trade Kickers
2010-06-11

[...] 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.

- Tony Battie (10%)
- Mark Blount (15%)
- Bruce Bowen (lesser of 15% or $300,000)
- Devin Brown (10%)
- Greg Buckner (5%)
- Kevin Garnett (15%)
- Drew Gooden (5%)
- Eddie House (7.5%)
- Steven Hunter (7.5%)
- Zydrunas Ilgauskas (15%)
- Mike James (5%)
- Jared Jeffries (15%)
- Amir Johnson (15%)
- Mikki Moore (12.5%)
- Shaquille O'Neal (15%)
- Quentin Richardson (7.5%)
- John Salmons (15%)
- Bobby Simmons (10%)
- Etan Thomas (15%)
- Damien Wilkins (10%, only up to $1.2 mil)

   Looking for an unsigned forward? These guys are available
2013-12-13

Quentin Richardson - Waived by the Raptors despite a guaranteed contract, Q's athleticism has long since left him, and he is now little more than an inefficient volume shooter with occasional nights of rebounding. The Raptors opted to pay him for three seasons despite him never playing a game for them, which is no great endorsement.

Free Agents








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.
