Which means they're non-guaranteed. Just because you personally think that it's not a huge deal doesn't change whether or not the contracts are guaranteed. Stop making false claims, and start providing citations for your own references if you're going to demand them of others.
the couple dozen tertiary players on non-guaranteed deals doesn't change that fact that the vast majority of NBA players have guaranteed. They're not a meaningful sample of the league's rosters. NBA contracts are almost entirely guaranteed... Happy now?
