Teams with players on non-guaranteed deals must make a decision by the end of the day or those players contracts will become fully guaranteed. SB Nation's Scott Schroeder runs down all of the non-guaranteed deals in the NBA and the Atlanta Hawks have three such players in Ivan Johnson, Jannero Pargo and Jerry Stackhouse.
February 10 is the actual deadline for contracts to become guaranteed but teams will need to waive players by the end of the day to ensure that they clear waivers before the deadline. Therefore a roster move may in fact be more imminent than we originally thought. van Johnson isn't going anywhere for the Hawks as currently he is the backup center and has impressed the Hawks with his play dating back to mini camp in the off season. Johnson is currently averaging six points and four rebounds in 15.7 minutes of action per game.
Jannero Pargo isn't as safe a bet since the Hawks now have Kirk Hinrich back in uniform. Pargo has been relegated of late to third string point guard but could still be valuable if Teague or Hinrich were to go down with an injury. Pargo has appeared in 23 games and has averages of 4.0 points and 1.5 assists per game.
Jerry Stackhouse was slotted for the end of the bench slot that was manned by Etan Thomas last season. Stackhouse's on-court contributions have been minimal but he has drawn praise at every opportunity from teammates and the coaching staff.
Atlanta may elect to waive Stackhouse and Pargo only to bring them back on 10-day contracts much like they did last season with Damian Wilkins. Atlanta currently has one roster spot available.
