Amnesty Provision Tracker

When the NBA introduced the amnesty clause in the 2005 Collective Bargaining Agreement, it could only be used in the summer of ’05. However, when the league and players’ union reached an agreement on the new CBA in 2011, the amnesty provision was modified to allow teams to use it in any of the next five offseasons.

You can read more about how the amnesty provision works in our Hoops Rumors glossary entry, but the purpose of this post is to track which teams have used the amnesty clause to date, and which teams still have it in their back pockets. You can find this tracker at any time on the right sidebar under “Hoops Rumors Features.”

Here’s how the amnesty landscape currently looks:

76ers: Elton Brand (2012; One year, $18,160,355)
Bulls: Carlos Boozer (2014; One year, $16,800,000)

    You know the Knicks are wishing they hadn’t burned their amnesty clause so quickly with the Ama’re deal looking terrible.

    • dc21892

      Amare’s deal is only looking terrible because the Knicks are built with all scorers, with the exception of Chandler. Do the math. They dont want to do what is best for the team so someone will suffer due to the other star getting theirs on isolations.

      heck i would love for the rockets to trade for amare .. amare was palying great until marsh melo showed up ..

    I thought the Blazers still had the amnesty available because Brandon Roy retired.

    • HoopsRumors

      Nope, Roy didn’t officially file retirement papers, so the Blazers are still paying him and don’t have their amnesty clause anymore.

      Nope, they sent him to Orlando for Rashard Lewis well before the lockout, so it was the Magic that amnestied Arenas.
