“Mitch Kupchak has been trying to move World Peace, and if he fails it’s possible he will use the amnesty clause in order to take a bite out of the team’s tax bill.”


he's been trying to move Gasol as well, therefore if he fails its possible he'll amnesty Gasol in order to take a bite out of the teams tax bill by that logic. Possible is a term of writer speculation not legitimacy. This is pretty much a poll being passed off as news or like its actually being discussed when nothing in the article really would say that.

I'm fine with it.

He's now ineffective when guarding quicker players. He was garbage on offense for most of the season.

And what about the second half when he was fully healthy and in shape? :nah: he was one of our most effective players.

Hate how people constantly forget that.

He's coming INTO this season in great shape and in a much better place physically. So yeah there's a lot he can do for our team.

He was terrible until the final month of the regular season. He was still averaging only 8 pts a game in March. He was also terrible throughout most of the 2010-2011 season. He can't guard quick players anymore. I saw that consistently, even during the postseason against OKC.

He's not worth waiting nearly the entire season to get into shape again.

The 2010-2011 season, he played through an injury. This past season, he finally got into shape by that final month, & started playing well, he stepped up when Kobe was out. He's in shape NOW, so he still can contribute. He's one of those guys Kobe can rely on. I say keep him.

Keep Metta, this year. Try to make a buyout with Steve Blake.
Hold on to the amnesty for one year. Who knows what happens. Maybe kobe tears his ACL this season. If nothing happens, then Amnesty metta the last year of his contract. He is still a solid wing defender.

Give amnesty to one of the few players who showed up in the playoffs, still one of the best on-ball defenders in the NBA, shows a love for being a Laker, has some trade value rather than losing him for nothing (and being stuck with Ebanks as your starter) and a player Kobe loves having around?

It won't happen, but to those who want it to - not so intelligent a decision.

They won't amnesty Blake either. I really wish the amnesty program never happened. Just sick and tired of people being fascinated with the thing to the point of wanting to do it just to do it. Who do you want at the backup point, Morris? That's all the Lakers have if Blake is let go.


Neither one of them make enough money to waste the amnesty. Use it on Pau next year :laughing:

Guess you were right, just found this on a different site.

Amnesty is a one-time opportunity for teams to release one player via the waiver process (see question number 63) and remove him from their team salary and luxury tax computations. For a player to be eligible for the Amnesty provision he must be on his team's roster continuously from July 1, 2011 to the date he is amnestied, without any new contract, extension, renegotiation or other amendment to his contract in the meantime. Players who were waived prior to July 1, 2011 and are still receiving guaranteed salary are also eligible. Teams cannot amnesty players they sign, receive in trade, extend, renegotiate, or otherwise amend after July 1, 2011.

Amnesty can be used prior to the 2011-12 through 2015-16 seasons, although teams may use the provision only once in total -- not once per season. For the 2011-12 season the Amnesty provision was available from December 9-16, 2011. For the 2012-13 through 2015-16 seasons it is available for the first seven days that follow the July moratorium (see question number 101).

Sweet a guy as he is, @MettaWorldPeace will be waived via amnesty by Lakers to save about $30 million, barring some late change.

Another reason why letting clark go was dumb.
