New signings in the 2024 NBA draft pick

News about free agents and transfers have made the biggest NBA headlines in recent days, but teams across the league are also taking care of the rookies they drafted on June 26 and 27 and signing them to their first NBA contracts. With cap holds for first-round picks in the current collective bargaining agreement counting 120% of the rookie scale instead of 100%, there is little incentive for teams to wait to sign their first-round picks.

For first-round picks, rookie contracts are pretty rigid because they're basically predetermined. The NBA's rookie scale structure dictates that first-round picks sign four-year deals that include two guaranteed years and then team options in the third and fourth years.

The value of these contracts depends on where a player was drafted. This year, No. 1 overall pick Zaccharie Risacher is in line for a four-year contract worth over $57 million, which is the maximum allowable 120% of his collective bargaining amount. No. 30 Pick Baylor Scheiermanis entitled to a four-year contract worth approximately $12.8 million.

The full breakdown of salaries and contracts for this year's first-round rookies can be found here – if you see a first-round pick listed as “under contract” below, you can assume that's what his contract looks like unless otherwise noted.

Second-round picks, meanwhile, are not guaranteed two guaranteed seasons, although some players will get them. The NBA's most recent collective bargaining agreement created a new exception to the salary cap for second-rounders, allowing teams to sign these players to contracts of up to four years, with their starting salary equal to the minimum salary of a two-year veteran. In the past, such a deal would have required a salary cap or another exception, such as the mid-level salary cap.

Some second-rounders don't sign standard NBA contracts right away. They may get two-way contracts, play in the G League, or go overseas to hone their game while their NBA teams retain their rights. We'll note that below, too, wherever it applies.
