Following are the salaries of the guaranteed 11 players under contract and the 3 non-guaranteed roster hopefuls. They've been listed in the order they were signed/came to terms in an effort to see what the Spurs' front office saw every step of the way -- the roster's total is shown after each signing to display where the Spurs were in relation to the cap and what moves they made with that knowledge in hand. Also along the way, Richard Jefferson's (RJ) original $15.2 million dollar contract was calculated to show what an opt-in could have meant.(Special thanks to Sham and Bruno for the help and L.J. Ellis for Neal and Jefferson's numbers)
*Note: Matt Bonner's salary has been updated from $3.05M to $3.00M while Neal's salary has been updated from $510K to $525K. Thanks again to Sham for all of his hard work. Please give him a visit if you'd like to know more about full terms and incentives.
