    Default More Risk For Teams To Take With Amnesty Now?

    do you think teams will have less of a problem giving second banana or third wheel guys bigger or more bloated contracts now with the Amnesty as plan b now?

    not that they had much of a problem with it before. Hello, Elton Brand, Baron Davis, Hedo Turkoglu and a million other shitty players with big contracts.

    You can only amnesty players signed before the current CBA. So the amnesty rule won't affect future signings.

    really, i did not know that. I feel like Seth Rogen from 50/50 when he found out Patrick Swayze was actually dead.

    Further to this, you can only use the amnesty on players on your own roster from the old CBA. Traded players cannot be amnestied.

    There is always the stretch amnesty that can still be used on any new signings. It's the twice the years + 1 year rule. So if you sign a guy for $10M for 2 years.. you can amnesty him by paying his salary in 5 years (2x2 +1). So your cap hit would be $2M for 5 years instead of $10M for 2 years.

    I believe if you use the stretch rule, the player must be placed on the waiver wire and can be signed as a free agent by another team.
