Ronnie Price signed with the Lakers over the summer without a guarantee he'd make the team. The veteran guard managed to work his way into the Lakers' rotation, and even the starting lineup. On Monday, the Lakers guaranteed half of his contract, or $658,405 of $1.3 million. Los Angeles Times

The league made the ruling after Price was ejected for a flagrant foul-2 in the Lakers’ loss Wednesday in New Orleans where he pulled down Austin Rivers from behind. But replays showed that Price attempted to stop the ball. “We feel that the contact came from an attempt to block the shot and that there was no intent to hit Austin Rivers in the head,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement. “Therefore, we are disappointed in the league’s decision.” Los Angeles Daily News

While both have made the team's initial roster, point guard Ronnie Price and shooting guard Wayne Ellington are non-guaranteed until Nov. 15, at which point a salary of a little over $300,000 apiece locks in. Price's guaranteed pay will step up to $658,405 if he's on the team as of Dec 15. Should Ellington stick to Dec. 1, $581,692 of his salary will be guaranteed. With Steve Nash ruled out for the season with chronic back issues, Price is expected to be a primary rotation player and possible starter. Los Angeles Times
