Patty Mills contract includes a player option for 2022-23. He got the full Taxpayer MLE from the Nets:— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) August 10, 2021
Both years are fully guaranteed.@spotrac
DeAndre' Bembry got some guaranteed money from the Brooklyn Nets in his one-year veteran minimum deal. Bembry's contract is guaranteed for $750,000, increasing to $1.25M on December 15. Fully guaranteed on the league-wide date of January 10, 2022.@spotrac— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) August 10, 2021

Sources: Spencer Dinwiddie’s three-year, $62 million contract with the Wizards has several bonuses each season, @hoopshype has learned.— Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) August 9, 2021

$571K if team makes ECF
$400K if team makes NBA Finals
