Could the Spurs land Luis Scola?

Recently, the Houston Rockets used their amnesty provision on 6' 9" forward Luis Scola. Most of the media has come to the conclusion that the Rockets let Scola go to get themselves closer to Dwight Howard. Whether or not it works, time will only tell

The main advantage [to amnesty] is the ability to go out and spend it again. That's not something we've really had much discussion about, the second part of it. Just in it of itself, it just creates more room and less tax and if you're not going to spend the money again it doesn't make any difference.

From the extended Petrie Q&A on the SacBee Kings Blog. Apparently, Geoff didn't get the memo from George that they're totally ready to start spending money to make this team good.

The coincidence was uncanny: Blind bidding on the amnesty waiver wire, several teams with a chance to claim Chauncey Billups, and somehow the Los Angeles Clippers made the highest offer. All these years owner Donald Sterling was the bane of the commissioner’s existence, and now David Stern needed him in the worst way. All the times Stern let the creep slide on professional and personal indiscretions, the NBA knew the Clippers were the final, most legitimate suitor still standing to bail the league out of its own self-created Chris Paul debacle...

Billips waiver process could have been a sham Could the Knicks possibly get that amnesty waiver back? Could the Knicks, Lakers and Houston have grounds to challenge in court?

Blazers talk to Roy, say they expect him in camp

For those of you who thought the Blazers would be amnestying Roy and thought he'd be a good fit for the Wolves. For all we know, though, they still will. This could be just talk, though I don't know what the Blazers' motivation would be behind pretending they're not going to cut Roy when they're actually going to cut Roy.

Rumor: Roy contemplating retirement?

From Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD: "League sources say that Roy may consider retirement if the Blazers decide to waive him. Roy has been weighing his options and asking a number of people if he would still be able to collect his amnesty money if he chooses to retire. The 27-year-old has had arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees and played in just 47 games last season."

Amnestying Renaldo Balkman Now Would Be a Huge Mistake

As we all know there is going to be an amnesty 2.0 clause in the newest CBA (and by the way, I was talking about the amnesty clause way back in June). Before getting into the specifics, lets look...

Details of the NBA's latest proposal

* no extend-and-trade * no sign-and-trade for teams that are paying luxury tax * less lucrative Bird rights * no player options for max deals * 4-year contract length (5 for Bird deals) * 3-/4-year midlevel exception * one contract amnesty per team * "stretch" multi-year expensing for contracts of cut players * etc. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/14/sports/basketball/what-nba-could-be-like-under-a-new-labor-deal.html?hp
