As most, if not all of you, know by now, David Stern and the NBA were able to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement with Billy Hunter and the NBAPA. In the new CBA, one of the provisions is an amnesty cut that can be used by every team at any time during the decade long duration of the bargaining agreement.
Unlike the "Allan Houston" provision that emerged from the previous CBA negotiations in 1999, the amnesty cuts will actually remove any impact of the cut players' salaries from the salary cap. Of course, the team still has to pay the player the remainder of the money on his contract, but an amnesty cut could help teams get well under the salary cap or luxury tax threshold if necessary.
The Toronto Raptors, like every other team in the league, have the right to use their amnesty cut, and the purpose of this article will be to provide some insight as to which Raptors player should be slashed from the roster.
