Salary Bookkeeping, 2013

July 1st is (the date on which one season ends and the next one begins, and thus June 30th (and the week preceding it) is an important cut-off date for certain transactions.

Players with player or early termination options had to decide if they were coming back; the few players with team options awaited an uncertain future; players eligible for QO's had to see if they got them.

All the results are in now, and there follows a list of who did what before July 1st. NB: free agent statuses taken as of April 22nd 2013.


The following players opted in:

- Charlotte = Ben Gordon
- Dallas = Shawn Marion
- Detroit = Charlie Villanueva
- Golden State = Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush
- L.A. Lakers = Metta World Peace
- Memphis = Jerryd Bayless
- Miami = Ray Allen, James Jones and Rashard Lewis
- Philadelphia = Kwame Brown
- San Antonio = Patrick Mills and Boris Diaw
- Toronto = Aaron Gray and Linas Kleiza
- Utah = Marvin Williams
- Washington = Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor



The following players opted out:

- Brooklyn = C.J. Watson
- Cleveland = Marreese Speights
- Dallas = O.J. Mayo
- Denver = Andre Iguodala
- Golden State = Carl Landry

The following players had their 2013/14 team options exercised:

- L.A. Lakers = Jodie Meeks
- Miami = Mario Chakmers
- Milwaukee = Gustavo Ayon
- Minnesota = Dante Cunningham



The following players had their team options declined:

- Houston = Francisco Garcia
- Toronto = John Lucas III


(No one really gives out team options any more. For an explanation as to why, read the opening of this.)



The following players were eligible for a qualifying offer, and got one:

- Atlanta = Jeff Teague
- Charlotte = Gerald Henderson
- Denver = Timofey Mozgov
- Indiana = Tyler Hansbrough
- L.A. Lakers = Robert Sacre
- Milwaukee = Brandon Jennings
- Minnesota = Nikola Pekovic
- New York = Pablo Prigioni and Chris Copeland

The following players were eligible for a qualifying offer, but didn't get one:

- Denver = Julyan Stone
- Indiana = Ben Hansbrough and Jeff Pendergraph

- Memphis = Austn Daye and Jon Leuer
- Orlando = DeQuan Jones
- Philadelphia = Charles Jenkins
- Phoenix = Diante Garrett
- Portland = Eric Maynor
- Sacramento = Toney Douglas and James Johnson
- Washington = Garrett Temple


(Under the new CBA, all qualifying offers have to be fully guaranteed. Previously, they only had to be guaranteed for the same percentage amount as the previous year's salary was. Therefore, fewer qualifying offers are given out now.)



The following players had fully or partially unguaranteed contracts with guarantee dates between the end of the season and today:

- Boston: Paul Pierce (only $5 million of $15,333,334 guaranteed if waived on or before June 30th; made the date and became guaranteed) and Terrence Williams (fully unguaranteed if waived on or before June 30th, then $200,000 guaranteed if waived on or before September 1st, then $300,000 guaranteed if waived on or before October 31st, thereafter fully guaranteed; waived yesterday, thus guaranteed nothing.)

- Detroit: Viacheslav Kravstov (only $500,000 of $1.5 million guaranteed if waived on or before June 29th; made the date and became guaranteed) and Rodney Stuckey (only $4 million of $8.5 million guaranteed if waived on or before June 30th; made the date and became guaranteed),

- Houston: Chandler Parsons (only $600,000 of $926,500 guaranteed if waived on or before June 30th; made the date and became guaranteed), Carlos Delfino ($3 million salary all unguaranteed if waived on or before June 30th; waived yesterday, thus guaranteed nothing) and Aaron Brooks ($2,508,000 salary all unguaranteed if waived on or before June 30th; waived yesterday, thus guaranteed nothing)

- San Antonio: Matt Bonner (only $1 million of $3,945,000 guaranteed if waived on or before June 29th; made the date and became guaranteed)




Many other players still have unguaranteed salaries with various different guarantee dates, or no guarantee dates at all. See here for a summary.

  1. How she could assess in six and half minutes (without ever seeing my books) that she didn't want to deal with it was disappointing. bookkeeping services sunshine coast

  2. Accurate bookkeeping is a necessity if you run your own business. It may seem to be something of a chore but it’s vitally important that you keep track of your revenue and outgoings. Many businesses which would otherwise have been successful have been brought down by their failure to maintain proper financial records. Whether you do it yourself or hire someone else to do it.http://awolfbookkeeping.com/
