Chauncey Billups got picked up by the Los Angeles Clippers off the amnesty waiver, so he'll either be going there or nowhere. Other players who have been or will be amnestied might not be picked up, though, and will have more freedom in choosing where they go. Here are the rumored or actual amnesty players and where they might end up. 

Gilbert Arenas has already cleared the waivers and wants to go where Dwight Howard goes. The Nets have offered to oblige if they get a trade. If he doesn't end up with Howard, which he wouldn't if Howard doesn't get traded, Minnesota is a conceivable landing spot. They have been in the market for a wing, as evidenced by their interest in Crawford, and haven't yet landed one. 

Richard Jefferson has been rumored to be an amnesty cut by San Antonio. Portland has shown interest in in him in the past and need a small forward to replace the recently-retired Brandon Roy. 

Baron Davis is considered a favorite for the Knicks, who, after amnestying Chauncey Billups to land Tyson Chandler, are now essentially a team without a quality point guard. The problem is that ESPN reports that he has an injured back, which could keep him out for weeks. 

They picked up Mike Bibby for the league minimum, but he isn't the best candidate to be running a Mike D' Antoni offense. 

Travis Outlaw hasn't been cut yet, but it's rumored he will be. His circumstances are affected by a broken hand, which he got boxing. Outlaw is still a week away form being able to participate in contact practices

 It's hard to imagine anyone picking him up off the waiver wire, but a team or two in need of some depth at power forward could pick him up. Boston and Miami always seem to be picking up strays, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him end up with one of those teams. But really, right now, there aren't any teams indicating an interest in him. 

Charlie Bell didn't have much of a career to begin with, and considering that he showed up drunk to his DUI case, it's doubtful anyone is going to roll the dice on a player with serious issues at 32 and who doesn't have a lot to offer.
