    If amnesting Amir leads to the Raptors landing a really good piece then I'm sold. Just look at it as Amir were part of the trade. Essentially he would be as the trade could not happen in this scenario without him leaving the books.

    The way I've read comments about the value of Calderon's expiring contract, is specifically why other teams would value him, not only other teams though. Some teams would value Calderon just for what he offers on the court - veteran leadership, pass first PG, team player. Other teams might like the idea of dropping a big long-term contract for an expiring one, to clear cap space for next offseason.

    I think the Raptors see value for both reasons, or the idea of keeping him and re-signing him beyond next season, for much cheaper.

    Because the Raptors aren't fighting to stay below the tax threshold. They don't need cap relief next year. All cap relief will do for them is reduce their payroll number closer to the salary cap. It won't reduce their payroll to the point that they can be free agent buyers next off-season, not to accomplish anything significant that they couldn't do with the MLE. If they can't be buyers with the expiring contract and they're not fighting the tax threshold then who is his expiring deal benefiting? Not you the fan when his deal runs out and he potentially leaves free.

    It has value in the sense that it could be included in a trade package for a larger, longer term contract. Think Joe Johnson .. if you were ATL (before you traded him to to the Nets) .. you can argue that swapping him for Jose + other stuff is a good thing because instead of oweing JJ another 4 years 80 mm, you owe Jose 10 mm next year and thats it. Similar if we traded JC to LAL for Artest. So .. its not so much value per se, its value relative to another, worse
