Mark Cuban suggested that the Los Angeles Lakers may have to consider using their amnesty provision on Kobe Bryant this offseason.
Bryant is owed $30.4 million for the 13-14 season, but continues to play at a high All-Star level.

"If you look at their payroll, even if Dwight (Howard) comes back, you’ve got to ask the question: Should they amnesty Kobe?"

Cuban said he wouldn't consider doing a similar move on Dirk Nowitzki. The Dallas Mavericks have made several cost-saving moves in recent offseasons, such as their decision not to re-sign Tyson Chandler.

"It’s the same reason I wouldn’t get rid of Dirk (Nowitzki). I’ll take a hit for a season rather than get rid of Dirk. That’s just it. I’ve made that commitment to him over the years and he’s returned that commitment. Maybe that’s selfish, but that’s just the way it is."

The Lakers will have the highest luxury tax bill in the NBA for the 12-13 NBA season.

If the Lakers use their amnesty provision, it will more likely be on Metta World Peace and his $7.7 million salary.

Guess the [expletive]ing idiot forget to check the Lakers payroll after next season when Dwight and Nash are the only dudes on the payroll and with that cap space Lakers can potentially sign Lebron James

Dumbass Cuban.

Again another misleading title.

Cuban said its something they "may" consider with the tax but that if he were in the same situation he wouldn't do it, and wouldn't do it to Dirk either because of the years invested and the hit the team would take.

He didn't suggest they amnesty Kobe he said that it is something they'd have to consider tax-wise but he wouldn't even do it if he had the option so they won't either.

Its easy to tell who really reads articles.

Cuban wants Lakers to amnesty Kobe. For that matter, he wants Miami to amnesty LeBron, OKC to amnesty Durant, and the NBA to amnesty Stern.

I think in the article he says something like "I am not suggesting they will or should amnesty"
