2013 Amnesty Period Ends

Tuesday night marked the last chance this offseason for eligible teams to exercise the amnesty clause, which allows them to waive a player and remove his name from their books for salary-cap and luxury-tax purposes (while continuing to pay him).  Amnesty week started on July 10, and while the 2013 period wasn't as busy as last season, there were still five teams that chose to take advantage of the clause, including three today.  As a reminder, amnestied players are placed on waivers, but the rules are a little different than usual, as we outlined in our 2013 Amnesty Primer.

As of 11:00pm CT tonight, teams that had yet to utilize the amnesty provision won't get another chance to do so until next July.  With the deadline now behind us, here's the complete list of players who were amnestied this offseason, along with the teams and players that are still amnesty-eligible, and the teams that will not be able to utilize the provision:


Remaining amnesty-eligible teams and players:

Amnesty-eligible teams without amnesty-eligible players (cannot use clause):

  • Detroit Pistons
