UPDATE: Jared Weiss from the Athletic breaks it down a little more:
Quick explainer on Exhibit 10 contracts: It's a training camp deal for the minimum salary (around $850-900k) that usually includes a bonus up to $50k. The team then can waive him at the end of the preseason and make him a designated player for the G-League, or convert to a 2-way. https://t.co/ZSsr0HoSIP— Jared Weiss (@JaredWeissNBA) June 21, 2019
Fall averaged 11 points, 2.6 blocks and 7.7 rebounds in his senior season at the University of Central Florida.
