Default Re: Bargnani close to being acquired by the Knicks

By having the amnesty available, we can offer cap relief to a team that is packaging a good player with a bad contract signed under the old CBA. For instance, aquire Bledsoe and Butler (not sure if his contract was signed under the old CBA) for Demar & another piece, then turn around and amnesty Butler. We can then get out from the Demar contract and Butler's, while getting a PG that could still benefit from seasoning to help with the tank. Also allows us to see if Ross can handle more, and if he develops, great, otherwise, more L's for more ping pong balls.
