Unless noted otherwise, year-by-year salary data is from ShamSports.com. Some figures may be estimates. All information is based on Larry Coon’s explanation of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement. Read below for details on each player:

Josh Smith

Josh Smith signed a four-year contract in July 2013 that includes $54 million in base salary and $2 million in unlikely performance-based incentives. All performance-based incentives, likely and unlikely, count toward team salary in the first season of a contract. Unlikely performance-based incentives do not inherently count toward team salary in future seasons. It is not known the structure of Smith’s bonuses, but $500,000 per season is estimated.

Charlie Villanueva

Charlie Villanueva signed a five-year, $37.7 million contract in July 2009. It contains unlikely performance incentives. If Villanueva opts into the final year of his contract, assuming his 2013-14 salary is above the league average, his cap hold in the summer of 2014 will be the lesser of $12,870,000 and the maximum salary. Because Basketball Related Income has yet to be determined for future seasons, $12,870,000 will be used when computing team salary with options and holds.

Rodney Stuckey

Rodney Stuckey signed a three-year, $25.5 million contract in December 2011. In the summer of 2014, his cap hold will be the lesser of $12,750,000 and the maximum salary. Because Basketball Related Income has yet to be determined for future seasons, $12,750,000 will be used when computing team salary with options and holds.

Brandon Jennings

Brandon Jennings was acquired in a sign-and-trade in July 2013. He reportedly received a three-year, $24 million contract, but the figures relayed such reports are often rounded. The above table estimates Jennings will receive $24,215,517 – the maximum allowable amount he could have received in a sign-and-trade that sent out Brandon Knight, Viacheslav Kravtsov and Brandon Knight.

Jonas Jerebko

Jonas Jerebko signed a four-year, $18 million contract in December 2011.

Greg Monroe

Greg Monroe signed for the typical 120 percent of the rookie scale after being drafted No. 7 in 2010. If he meets the “starter criteria” – starting 41 games or playing 2,000 minutes in the 2013-14 regular season or averaging either of those marks in the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons – he will be eligible to receive a $5,479,934 qualifying offer in the summer of 2014. Otherwise, his qualifying offer will be $4,268,609. His cap-hold projection assumes his 2013-14 salary is below the league average.

Will Bynum

Will Bynum signed a two-year, $5,706,251 million contract in July 2013. His salary structure is estimated.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope signed for the typical 120 percent of the rookie scale after being drafted No. 8 overall in 2013.

Chauncey Billups

Chauncey Billups signed a two-year, $5 million contract in July 2013. The second year contains a team option.

Andre Drummond

Andre Drummond signed for the typical 120 percent of the rookie scale after being drafted No. 9 in 2012. If he meets the “starter criteria” – starting 41 games or playing 2,000 minutes in the 2015-16 regular season or averaging either of those marks in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons – he will be eligible to receive a $4,267,426 qualifying offer in the summer of 2016. Otherwise, his qualifying offer will be $4,045,894. His cap-hold projection assumes his 2015-16 salary is below the league average.

Luigi Datome

Luigi Datome signed a two-year, $3.5 million contract in July 2013.

Kyle Singler

Kyle Singler signed a three-year, $3,135,000 contract in July 2012 after being drafted in 2011. He will be eligible to receive a $1,362,500 qualifying offer in the summer of 2015.

Tony Mitchell

Tony Mitchell signed a three-year contract worth $9,820 more than a minimum salary in the first season and the minimum salary in the following two seasons. The third year is fully unguaranteed and becomes fully guaranteed July 16, 2015.

Peyton Siva

Peyton Siva signed a contract in August 2013. The terms of the deal are unknown, but the above table estimates a two-year, minimum contract with the second year unguaranteed.
