Questions and Answers about rosters

Why are some players in yellow fields?

This indicates that player was either a 2017 All-Star or 2017 All-NBA team member.

Why are some of the fields orange?

Orange fields indicate players that have been signed or will reportedly sign under the new 2-way contracts between the NBA and G-League. Each team is allowed up to two 2-way roster spots. 

Why are some players’ names italicized?

This could mean several things. The player has reportedly agreed to sign with that team. 

Why do some players have a date behind their name or “NG?”
