The amnesty clause is a huge affection in the National Basketball Association, as it became a new rule in as a result of the new collective bargaining system. The amnesty clause is allows team to terminate a player's contract, though it comes with certain conditions.

First of all, if a player should be amnestied, it doesn't go against the salary cap, therefore for all NBA fans, players like Chauncey Billups, Travis Outlaw, and others with large contracts, were amnestied. However, only one player can be amnestied. When this occurs, he goes to the waiver wire, and a team can bid on him, leading him to play there.

The amnesty clause would help many teams lower their financial deficit, and might not make players happy, but business is business, and in many cases an amnesty clause is very much needed.

The amnesty clause, not only helps a team clear financial deficit. It can also play a huge role in a team that's missing just one small piece, without a doubt, in the case of a amnesty clause rule their will be some nice players on the waiver wire, and it will be a outstanding experience to follow out every move. The player can change the look of a team. It can bring a team to the championships. It can help a team succeed.

The MLB has no form of amnesty clause as of now, but let's play around with it. Here is a look of each team if an amnesty clause would ever be in affect in the MLB.
