AIM: # 1 Posted on 3.8.05 1627.38 Reposted on: 3.8.12 1627.56 We have the first victim of the amnesty provision in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Blazers get rid of Derek Anderson. Originally posted by NBA.com http://www.nba.com/blazers/news/Trail_Blazers_Waive_Trail_Blaz-148107-41.html The Portland Trail Blazers announced today that the club has waived Guard Derek Anderson. Anderson will be designated as the teamís amnesty player under the luxury tax amnesty provision of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The provision allows a team to release a player and remove his contract amount from the teamís salary cap for purposes of calculating the luxury tax. The Trail Blazers will be responsible for the remaining two years of Andersonís contract and he is free to sign with another team. ... During the 2004-2005 season Anderson saw action in only eight of the teamís final 42 games due to various injuries, including a sinus ailment, dental problems and back spasms. An eight-year NBA veteran, he played in 47 games with 32 starts for the Trail Blazers last season and averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 26.4 minutes per game. In the 2003-2004 season Anderson appeared in 51 games, 45 in the starting line up. He averaged 13.6 points, 4.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.29 steals and 35.5 minutes. He had limited action that season due to a herniated disk. Anyone interested in a somewhat injury-prone 6'5" guard who can play the point? In other Blazer news, they got rid of Nick Van Exel.

Damn. Meanwhile, please believe Brian Grant is next on the list.

I assume by victim you're talking about the Blazers organization, because being paid to not work, plus with the chance to sign with another team is a sweet deal.

AIM: # 4 Posted on 5.8.05 1659.18 Reposted on: 5.8.12 1702.56 Looks like Mr. Jackie Christie is next. Originally posted by Orlando Sentinel http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/basketball/magic/orl-sptmagic05080505aug05,0,3387326.story?coll=orl-magic Making use of the newly installed amnesty clause, league sources in New York confirmed that the Orlando Magic would waive the disgruntled Doug Christie. Although Christie would still be paid the $8.2 million that he is owed for the upcoming season, waiving him using the amnesty clause would save the Magic just as much in luxury tax payments. This ends Doug Christie's tumultuous stay in Orlando after being acquired in a trade with Sacramento for Cuttino Mobley. Any chance of Jackie and her husband going back to Sacto?

Originally posted by Kawshen Any chance of Jackie and her husband going back to Sacto? This may just be my own crazy opinions from what I've seen watching him, but I have to wonder whether Doug would be able to muster up the emotional energy to "forgive" Sacramento for trading him. Also, I can't see it happening without us first losing BOTH Songaila and Evans...unfortunately, that could be very likely.

The Lakers save $30M on the luxury tax by cutting him. I think he might be headed back to Portland - they apparently loved him up there even though his knees are just gone.

I thought the same thing, RSN. And according to realgm, it looks like the Knicks might not cut him after all.

Here's more to add to the list: Aaron McKie - 76ers Eddie Robinson - Bulls Jerome Williams - Knicks Alonzo Mourning's buyout - Raptors Ron Mercer - Nets EDIT: Add Reggie Miller's contract to the list.

I must confess that I had to look for his name. Since I found it and returned here, I have forgotten who it was. Calvin Booth - does that ring a bell?
