Contract Details: Koloko, Caboclo, Silva, Tillman, Watanabe, Spurs

As initially reported by Blake Murphy of, the Raptors used exactly $1.5MM of their mid-level exception to sign rookie big man Christian Koloko to a three-year contract on Friday. With the second and third years worth the minimum, Kolokoโ€™s deal has a total three-year value of $5,239,563.

The first two years of that contract are fully guaranteed, Hoops Rumors has learned, with the third year non-guaranteed. Kolokoโ€™s salary for 2024/25 would become fully guaranteed if he hasnโ€™t been waived within 48 hours of the 2024 NBA draft.

Here are a few more details on newly-signed contracts from around the NBA:

  • The new one-year, non-guaranteed contracts for Bruno Caboclo (Celtics), Chris Silva (Hawks), and Justin Tillman (Nuggets) all include Exhibit 10 language. Silvaโ€™s and Tillmanโ€™s deals could be converted into two-way contracts, but Cabocloโ€™s canโ€™t, since he has too many years of NBA service to be two-way eligible.
  • Yuta Watanabeโ€˜s one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Nets includes an Exhibit 9 clause, but not an Exhibit 10. That essentially means that Watanabe is only in the mix to compete for a regular season roster spot and probably wonโ€™t be joining Brooklynโ€™s G League affiliate if heโ€™s cut (heโ€™s ineligible for a two-way deal).
  • Alize Johnsonโ€˜s non-guaranteed contract with the Spurs is an Exhibit 9, but not an Exhibit 10. Tommy Kuhseโ€˜s deal is an Exhibit 10, so he could have it converted into a two-way deal or could become an affiliate player for the Austin Spurs.
