    Amnesty Cuts (winning bids post #28)

    Under the new CBA, all teams are granted the opportunity to cut one of their players with no further financial obligation toward that player. In other words, any one player cut here (and it is one per team) counts nothing toward your team's payroll.

    The following teams have already exercised this provision and may not amnesty another player:

    Brooklyn Nets - Travis Outlaw
    Cleveland Cavaliers - Baron Davis
    Golden State Warriors - Charlie Bell
    Indiana Pacers - James Posey
    New York Knicks - Chauncey Billups
    Orlando Magic - Gilbert Arenas
    Portland Blazers - Brandon Roy
    -----
    Atlanta Hawks - Marvin Williams
    Boston Celtics - JaJuan Johnson
    Chicago Bulls - Richard Hamilton
    Dallas Mavericks - Brendan Haywood
    Denver Nuggets - Al Harrington
    Detroit Pistons - Charlie Villanueva
    Houston Rockets - Marcus Morris
    Los Angeles Clippers - Ryan Gomes
    Memphis Grizzlies - Jeremy Pargo
    Miami Heat - Mike Miller
    Milwaukee Bucks - Beno Udrih
    Minnesota Timberwolves - Wesley Johnson
    New Orleans Hornets - Emeka Okafor
    Oklahoma City Thunder - Daequan Cook
    Phoenix Suns - Josh Childress
    Sacramento Kings - John Salmons
    San Antonio Spurs - Corey Joseph
    Toronto Raptors - Amir Johnson
    Utah Jazz - Earl Watson
    Washington Wizards - Rashard Lewis

    Amnestied players will not automatically be dispersed into the free agent pool. If a team with cap space has interest in an amnestied player, the GMs of that team will PM all three commissioners (ebbs, Corey, and myself) with their blind bid for that player. If you don't understand how this process works or have any questions, feel free to ask one of us what the hell I'm talking about.

    Now that you know the decisions of the players with opt out clauses, you can make your decisions as to who to use your amnesty provision on if you desire. Remember this is strictly optional.

    Also a reminder you will post who you wish to cut using the amnesty clause in this thread. You will PM me, Corey, and ebbs a bid for an amnestied player if #1 you want that player and #2 you have the cap space to make a bid for his services. It's a blind auction and it's how the provision is covered in the new CBA.

    Any player amnestied and not bid on will become an unrestricted free agent.

    Any questions, shoot them at me.
