As you know, the Amnesty Clause isn't going to be the boon to fee agency we originally believed it to be. Few teams will use it immediately in the first place, and secondary waivers will likely keep useful players on under-the-cap teams.
- Can't be used on players you've traded for
- Salary paid to amnesty player will count towards the salary floor, even if it's not on the cap
- Can't use 'stretch provision' to waive a player you acquired from the Amnesty process
- Secondary waiver claim is over the length of contract. So if you put in claim at the minimum for Brandon Roy, it's actually the minimum for 4 years (remainder of his deal).
- There will be a 7-day window before the start of the season to use amnesty, before it's re-enabled next season (if you didn't use it yet).
