Default Return of the Amnesty Clause!

Reports are surfacing regarding the "Amnesty Clause" being included in the new CBA deal.

For those that forget, the Amnesty Clause gives teams a one time offer of releasing a player and shedding their cap figure from their salary cap.

So, which teams are going to be taking advantage of this? Obviously cap-strapped teams and perhaps clubs with new ownership groups.

So fill in the blanks here! Who is going to get the Amnesty Axe?

Basically Curry-proofing the NBA, the way it should be!

I love how even David Stern has been poking fun at Eddy Curry throughout the process.

When players brought up JJ Barea as an example of a valuable piece to a championship team getting only $1.8 a season, Stern replied, "I see your JJ Barea and raise you Eddy Curry."

Amnestied players still get paid right?
If so, what would stop all of them from stacking together for the minimum on the Heat?

I don't think Arenas will be amnestied right away (last i read they said it can be used anytime over the new CBA but only on a player who was on your roster at the time of the CBAs begining) With otis's history with Arenas i think they'll try one more year out of him. Not that i agree with that though just my thoughts.

If the Raptors were to use it, it would probably be on Kleiza.

while we're at it.

Michael Redd and Bucks.

PS: no disrespect to Redd but damn...he got lazy after signing that contract in 2005.

Probably Brendan Haywood in Dallas so we have more tax money available to go after Tyson Chandler. Sounds like a $10 mill contract will really be $35,000,000 with the tax applied.

Hope its worth it.
