Pending Rookie Scale Options, Extensions
Eric Pincus breaks down the rookie scale contract options and eligible extensions that must be finalized by October 31.
Kevin Love is still with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the futures of restricted free agents Eric Bledsoe and Greg Monroe remain unclear, but most of the summer’s free agent decisions have been made.
At some point the Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons will have resolution with (or without) Bledsoe and Monroe, respectively. The remaining free agent stragglers will find homes as well.
Most teams still have a bit of business to resolve before the start of the 2014-15 NBA season, regarding rookie scale options and extensions.
Under the rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams hold options on the third and fourth years of players still on their rookie contracts (specifically for first-round picks).
Additionally, players heading into the final year of their rookie deals are eligible for contract extensions.
Both set of decisions need to be made on or before October 31.
