Default Re: Amnesty Boozer, sign Hinrich and O.J. Mayo

So in the best case scenario, we only free up 3-4 million in cap space. We will still be in the luxury threshold, so we will not be able to do anything, but work with the Mid-level exception. Or in simpler terms, we will be at the same venture in this offseason whether we amnesty Boozer or not!
Are you sure about that? If so, why the hell did the Magic amnesty Arenas' contract?
