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

Rodney Carney - Carney was just cut by the Warriors, after receiving scant little playing time behind the breakout star that is Dorell Wright. He shot 45% from three point range this season, but the sample size was so small that it probably doesn't mean anything; until emphatically proven otherwise, Carney is the 33% outside shooter that he was before this season. Carney hasn't improved in four years, and while he's decent defensively, it's nothing exceptional. There's no one particularly strong facet to his game. Not unless he can sustain the 45% three point shooting, at least.

   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)

In some additional related bookkeeping, the reason for many of the players listed in the previous list was due to the NBA's contract guarantee date. All players on NBA rosters on or after January 10th have their contracts guaranteed for the remainder of the season (future seasons are unaffected); this also includes waivers. In-season waivers are 48 hours long and do not include weekends; therefore, with the 10th of January being a Monday, players had to be waived by close of business on Wednesday 5th in order to have cleared waivers before the deadline date.

Eleven players with not fully guaranteed contracts were waived in the hours before that deadline: Steve Novak, Damien Wilkins, Jarron Collins, John Lucas III, Ime Udoka, Lester Hudson, Ronald Dupree, Brian Skinner, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Sundiata Gaines and Rodney Carney. Twenty seven unguaranteed players survived; Delonte West, Von Wafer, Brian Scalabrine, Samardo Samuels, Manny Harris, Alonzo Gee, Brian Cardinal, Melvin Ely, Gary Forbes, Jeremy Lin, Ish Smith, A.J. Price, Ike Diogu, Luc Richard Mbah A Moute, Ben Uzoh, Didier Ilunga-Mbenga, Shawne Williams, Malik Allen, Garret Siler, Patty Mills, Sean Marks, Darnell Jackson, Chris Quinn, Sonny Weems, Jeremy Evans, Cartier Martin and Hamady Ndiaye. Players with contracts who had already become guaranteed due to specific guarantee stipulations in their contracts were Sherron Collins, Derrick Brown, Josh McRoberts, Willie Warren, Derrick Caracter, Luther Head and Joey Dorsey.

   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left

- Rodney Carney * - Unless I've missed it, Carney has not been linked to any team thus far. He's going rather overlooked here; Carney may be offensively awkward, but he's a decent perimeter defender, and better than some wing players already signed ostensibly to be perimeter defensive specialists. (Mentioning no names.)

   The best of what's left

Rodney Carney - Carney returned to the Sixers last season, and responded with career lows in minutes, points and field goal percentage. Strangely, he also had a career high in PER, despite shooting only 40% from the field and 35% from three point range. Carney might yet churn out a long career as a Keith Bogans-like defensive specialist, and given his lack of improvements on offense over the last four years, he might have to.

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.
