2012 Amnesty Period Ends

10:35pm: A league official has corrected the earlier information sent out, tweets ESPN.com's Marc Stein. The amnesty deadline for this season is actually at 11:00pm central time today, rather than at 4:00pm CT. That allowed the Nuggets to amnesty Chris Andersen, and gives teams about 25 more minutes to cut players using the amnesty provision. The lists below will be updated to reflect any last-minute decisions.

4:38pm: The NBA's 30 teams have been informed that the amnesty period for 2012 has concluded, with Andray Blatche the only player who was cut at the deadline, tweets ESPN.com's Marc Stein. Clubs that still haven't used the amnesty provision will carry it over to next July, when they'll have another week to exercise it.

Here's the complete list of players who were cut using the amnesty clause this year, along with a few candidates who weren't released (including the years and guaranteed money remaining on their deals):


Not amnestied:

  • Bobcats: DeSagana Diop (One year, $7,372,200)
  • Bulls: Carlos Boozer (Three years, $47,100,000)
  • Heat: Mike Miller (Three years, $18,600,000)
  • Lakers: Metta World Peace (Two years, $14,986,240)
  • Pistons: Charlie Villanueva (Two years, $16,640,000)
  • Raptors: Jose Calderon (One year, $10,561,982)

    I’m shocked the heat didn’t amnesty Miller…Boozer doesn’t surprise me, but Metta was another shocker. Guess the Lakers feel he can still play top tier defense?

      would you amnesty a player that helped you win a championship?

        If there health continued to be a serious concern, yes.

    luis scola is by far the best player to get axed .. still cant belive the rox couldnt get anything in return for him .

      The Rockets were not trying to get rid of Scola. They were trying to free up cap space to try and make a deal for Dwight Howard, in which case they’d have to take on some bad contracts. Had they traded Scola, they would have gotten players with salaries for him which would not have freed up cap space.

    Chris Anderson is a freak. Real surprised Denver didn’t dump him while they had the chance.
