    Wasn't sure what an exhibit 10 contract was, but I found a site that breaks it down.

    https://www.12up.com/posts/nba-exhibit-10-contract-explained-01ddxzvtfz20

    "An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year deal worth the minimum salary that guarantees the player will receive a camp invite."

    "A team can’t carry more than six Exhibit 10 contracts at a time, and an Exhibit 10 contract can only be converted to a two-way deal before the regular season begins."

    "Even though an Exhibit 10 contract that gets converted to a two-way deal can later also turn into a standard NBA contract, it won't count against an NBA team's salary cap."

    Not sure if this was common knowledge around here or not.

    Rice played well for the Suns in summer league and made some key shots. He is a guard.

    So why wouldn't you always try and sign these contracts if they don't count against the cap? My question is, is that only for the one year that the exhibit 10 would apply as far as not counting against the cap? Seems like a loop hole.

    I don't believe a player can actually play for the team on one of these contracts. The only way they could play for the team is if they sign a regular contract or a two way contract (and you only get 2 of those each year). The idea is that you invite them to camp with this contract and if they don't want to keep the player on the NBA club via a normal or 2 way contract than they waive the player and the player can then gain a bonus by staying with the G-League team for the year. Or at least that is how I think it all works.

    Here is a little more clarification from that article.

    "If he is waived, the player will be offered $50,000 to sign with the G League affiliate of whomever waved them. Provided he stays on the roster for 60 days, he will earn that $50,000 bonus. The Exhibit 10 contract was created to incentivize players to stay in the G League as opposed to going abroad."

    Every team is out of cap space except the Hawks.

    Man that 2013 Draft Top 10 sucked. Giannis obviously saved that draft but McCollum, Gobert and to some degree Schröeder were keepers.

    Don't forget Oladipo. He looked like a legit star in Indiana before getting injured. He was viewed as a safe pick also, someone who was a good defender that would likely be a complimentary player. At best he was supposed to be the 3rd best player on a contending team and that was mainly because of his defense. OKC didn't realize what they had with him trading him for George. Of course he needed to get out of Westbrook's shadow to really come into his own. Not sure why it didn't work out in Orlando prior to OKC though. I think they're just the Suns of the East with constant coaching changes, bad player development, and no real plan moving forward.

    So when can I expect some Suns related news? It's the end of July. We have training camp in... September? I'd better start following the NFL again.
