How does the new amnesty clause work?

Once per season, you can drop one player from your team. His contract will be taken off your salary cap however your team still has to pay him.

I'm pretty sure it's one time ever.

you can amnesty one player over the life of the cba to get his contract out from being counted against the cap(the owner still has to pay him though),he is then set up on the amnesty market where teams under the cap can place claims on him and work out compensation in the form of paying part of what he's own under his old contract.if the team that holds his rights agree to terms then that team can sign him to a contract

Here's an article sort of explaining it. It doesn't seem like it will be that helpful to the Bulls his year.
