Details of the NBA Amnesty Provision

15

The details of the NBA Amnesty Provision have emerged. Among the highlights: - There will be a seven-day window to use your Amnesty, and those dates have not been determined yet (Mark Stein) - You cannot trade for a player, then use Amnesty on him. - An Amnestied player will come off the salary cap, but WILL count toward your salary floor (presumably because you're still paying him) - When a team bids on an Amnesty player, they're bidding for a price per season, for the ENTIRE contract. So if there are 4 years left, and they bid $4M/season, they're paying a guaranteed 16 million for four seasons. - If a team picks up an Amnestied player through the bidding process, they cannot use the stretch provision on that player later. Plenty more detail at the links above! EDIT: I'm still unclear on what happens to a player if they are Amnestied, then clear the bidding process without a bid. Can any team offer a one season contract, or do they need to sign him for all remaining seasons? [Storyteller confirms below that after a player receives no bids, there are no longer restrictions on offers. Thanks!]
