    Default Amnesty Bargnani

    place this in whichever thread merits it. But I was playing around with the trade machine, and although many combinations and salaries work...who in the fuck would take Andrea Bargnani?

    I came up with four teams that would be interested for different reasons.

    Minnesota: Love doesn't like them. Kirilenko, Peckovic, and Rubio can hide him on defense and Adelmans system suits his strengths.

    Houston: With Lin and Harden penetrating and able to keep their man in front of them and Asik manning the middle perhaps there is an opportunity for Bargs there. Perhaps we could land Royce White since we only show up for home games anyway.

    Indiana: With Hibbert packing the paint, Bargnani could be well suited to a role their. We could finally pick up an above average 3

    Lakers: It has been much discussed.

    If we can't land a deal with any of these teams....we need to consider busting out the Amnesty

    man id rather a 2nd rounder than to amnesty!

    Besides id rather amnesty a TRULY untradeable, like Kleiza, who if not gone in a package, will likely net us zero.

    Bad contracts BC has handed out: Hedo, Amir, Lenis, Andre, Landry. I say we amnesty BC for the rest of this year. No one should trust BC with a franchise ever again.

    Landry Fields. Maybe I'm spelling his name wrong. No trade. BC put up a overpriced offer sheet on this second rounder who had a poor 2nd year. Someone call Trump cause our GM needs to here two words right now "You're Fired."

    I don't think anyone wants to pay $10 mil a year for the next 2 years in exchange for a player that will weaken every single team in the NBA's defense. Amnesty AB at the end of the year and with Jose's contract expiring they will have roughly $20 mil that comes of the books. BC will then proceed to smile in front of the media and talk about how much money he has in the off season to sign some major talent, but will likely end up with an aging veteran well past his prime.

    Hopefully he can use some of that $$ to load up on draft picks for 2014.

    The only hope is things get so bad in LA they too fall victim to the potential Bargnani has in their system with D12 backing him up.

    Sadly, where ever Bargnani ends up he is likely to return to his near all-star status of last year.

    Momentarily, that is.

    The novelty of his new surroundings will surely motivate him initially. But doing the "
