Default Re: Trade thoughts

People tend to overuse the amnesty clause. it does nothing but clears that salary off the books for cap "reporting" purposes only. The team still has to pay the player the money, the total numbers even though not reported on the payroll still count against taxes. Using that clause on MWP doesn't open up enough cap room to allow Lakers to do anything they can't do now and creates a roster spot they have to fill with a lesser player. MWP will be more valuable as an expiring contract next season
