Question on Amnesty



I overheard an interesting conversation today...

Looking beyond our Blazer-world, if the Amnesty Clause is enacted to allow teams full Cap relief (rather than just Luxury Tax relief), what does that do to the NBA at large?   Couldn't it simply open the door to more dynasty-building?

Imagine BRoy is 'released' by the Blazers, but paid his full contracted salary under the 'Santa Clause' that we envision.   Yea for us - but now BRoy is a well-paid free agent, and able to sell his services to the highest bidder...or the team most likely to get a championship ring.  Isn't it conceivable that BRoy could sign with...um...Miami or the L*kers for a minimum salary?  After all, he is already getting max money from Mr. Allen.

Wouldn't other players that are released from their teams have the same thought?  While unlikely, what's to stop the Miami LeBrons from paying minimum salaries to guys like Elton Brand, BRoy, Ben Gordon, Gilbert Arenas, etc.?   I'm not sure that the small-market teams would have much of a chance to compete in such an environment.
