Teams must make decisions on rookie scale options for the prior season by October 31st. Therefore, since we are in the 2022-23 season, teams must decide on exercising or declining rookie scale options for the 2023-24 season. 

If an option is exercised, it becomes an actively guaranteed salary for the 2023-24 season.

If an option is declined, the option becomes a Cap Hold and will enter free agency as an Unrestricted Free Agent.
