TERRENCE WILLIAMS: Williams is set to earn $947,907 next season. If not waived on or before June 30, $200,000 of his contract becomes guaranteed. If not waived on or before Sept. 1, $300,000 becomes guaranteed. And Williams' contract becomes fully guaranteed if he's not waived on or before Oct. 31 (meaning he'd have to make the opening-day roster). Rapid reaction: Williams brings plenty of upside at a low price tag. Barring a run on veteran-minimum deals this offseason, he'll be here next season.
SHAVLIK RANDOLPH: Randolph is set to earn $1.1 million next season. His contract becomes fully guaranteed if not waived on or before Aug. 1. Rapid reaction: Randolph has the summer to show he belongs, but he already proved his value as a low-cost big man with rebounding abilities at the end of the 2011-12 season. He's got an excellent chance to stick if there's not a run on big-man additions.
DJ WHITE: White is set to earn $1 million next season. His contract becomes fully guaranteed if not waived on or before Aug. 1. Rapid reaction: White faces the longest odds of last year's late-season imports, but will get the summer to show he deserves a chance to stick around. With roster space at a premium, White could be an odd-man out unless he really shines in summer league.
