Partially-Guaranteed Contract Years
The final year of veteran contracts lasting 2 - 3 years, and the final two years of 4-year contracts, are deemed to be only partially-guaranteed (PG). This means a team may ‘buyout’ a player prior to a PG year. The rules governing PGs are detailed in Section 5.3.
5.3 PARTIALLY-GUARANTEED CONTRACT BUYOUT (offseason only)
All Veteran Contracts, are deemed to include partial-guaranty clauses for:
- the final year of 2 and 3 years contracts.
- the final two years of 4 year contracts.
Teams may choose not to buyout the player during the off-season preceding the partially guaranteed year. If so, the player will be removed from the team’s roster and a cap hold equal to the value of the buyout will be placed against the team’s cap for that year. The value of the buyout shall be:
- 25% of the upcoming year’s salary, if it is the final year of a 2, 3, or 4-year contract.
- 50% of the upcoming year’s salary, if it is the third year of a 4-year contract.
