SO Leslie is officially on the roster til Jan. 7th with the New York Knicks. Leslie signed for the rookie minimum ($490,180 courtesy of hoopsworld.) in a partially guaranteed deal. if he's on the roster after the 7th of January the deal becomes fully guaranteed and he gets paid for the whole year. The info was posted on Pack Insider this morning. Leslie has a qualifying offer that if picked up will give him a salary next year of $1,016,482 guaranteed.
Regarding C.J. Leslie's contract (via source): Guaranteed until Jan. 7, even if cut/waived before. After Jan. 7, deal is fully guaranteed.— Jared Zwerling (@JaredZwerling) July 8, 2013
After that depending on his play he'll be in line for a bigger contract. The Knicks admitted to wanting Leslie for their first round pick but with the strangeness of the draft up to that point, Tim Hardaway fell to them and with it (at the time) looking like J.R. Smith would be going elsewhere, they needed a strong shooter.
