Then you add in Bargs remaining 30 mill and it really makes no kind of sense for us to keep him. Even trading him for next to nothing makes more sense than keeping him on the books as a minimal bench contributor.
Yeah... I'd just as soon amnesty him and use the flexibility to MLE some backups to plug the huge backup pg hole than see if he can handle a bench role once more. We need to rid ourselves of at least one of Derozan and Bargnani and since I believe we can't amnesty Derozan (it was under new CBA he was signed right?) I thingkBargs HAS to go so we can get some now much needed depth.
