Unguaranteed or partially guaranteed final seasons are becoming quite the trend in the NBA, and they are quickly replacing team options. In fact, there are only 11 team options in the entire league, belonging to Chase Budinger, Jermaine Taylor, Andrew Bynum, Sam Young, Andres Nocioni, Hakim Warrick, Goran Dragic, Pooh Jeter, Francisco Garcia, Solomon Alabi and C.J. Miles. In contrast, there are so many partially or fully unguaranteed contracts in future years that I can't be bothered to go through and list them all.

Pooh Jeter

Pooh Jeter makes a summer league roster every year because he's very talented. He then doesn't make the NBA because he's very small.

- Eugene "Pooh" Jeter

Jeter started the year with Unicaja Malaga, but was signed on only a short term basis.

Jeter comes off the bench there, but still plays the majority of the game, averaging 12.5 points and 2.5 assists in 25 minutes per game in the Eurocup and 18.1/8.2/1.7 in the Israeli league.
