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.

Quinn has found himself in a good spot, a jumpshooting point guard on a team that needs both jumpshooters and point guards. Four of the best outside shooters on Philadelphia's team - Jodie Meeks, Jason Kapono, Andres Nocioni, and even Darius Songaila - figure to play about 1,500 minutes combined all season. Additionally, while the duo of Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala figure to do a lot of the half court playmaking, the point guard tandem of Jrue Holiday and Louis Williams aren't great at it. If nothing else, Quinn can run the pick and roll and shoot the three pointer. Philadelphia need those skills. Then again, Philadelphia need quite a lot.

- Chris Quinn * - The Magic were in talks with Quinn, but were able to get Whit Eboy to calm down instead, and so they no longer need a point guard. Diener's depature to Italy should benefit Quinn, since the two are quite similar; then again, Diener's departure to Italy was also quite a good idea and one that Quinn may also want to consider. Maccabi Tel-Aviv are now said to be interested in him as well.

Chris Quinn - Chris Quinn has played four seasons in the NBA. I don't mean to be rude when I say that that is enough. He is a marginal talent, a good three point shooter with a great assist to turnover ratio, but who can't do anything inside the paint in the NBA, and whose ratio masks the fact that he's not a great playmaker. Not making mistakes can only get you so far, and I think four NBA seasons would be a fair representation of how far it gets you. Then again, Quinn could definitely make an inactive list as a shooting option.
